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.

For more information, go to LinkedIn or Twitter.

Upcoming Events

We are continuously planning seminars for the current season as well as for future seasons. If you are interested in providing a seminar, please feel free to reach out via e-mail. We still have several openings available throughout the year. We are currently using a hybrid model.
