The Boston Glycobiology Discussion Group was formed in 1994 as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. For over two decades, the Boston Glycobiology Discussion Group (BGDG) has brought together academic researchers and industry representatives that share a common interest in glycobiology, glycoanalytics and glycoinformatics. 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 related to glycobiology, and engage in a friendly discussion of the speaker’s research.
BGDG comprises of a core board that oversees the proceedings of the group and an industrial advisory board. BGDG officers are elected for two years by a voting process and are responsible for the group's day-to-day activities.
