Welcome to the Boston Glycobiology Discussion Group! We are a group of over 200 researchers and industry representatives in the Boston metropolitan area with partners at Boston’s prominent research institutions and biotechnology companies. We meet on a monthly basis during the academic year to network, share a meal, listen to a guest speaker present state-of-the-art research in glycosciences, and engage in a friendly discussion of the speaker’s research.
