What You Will Learn:

GlycoMIP’s Summer School @ UGA will provide lectures on fundamental and applied concepts specific to the research and service areas of the MIP as well as hands-on instrument and techniques modules for the characterization and modeling of glycomaterials:

  • Glycomaterials: Overview of the current state of the science and applications of glycomaterials in research and development
  • Analytical: Overview of mass spectrometry, Biolayer Interferometry and NMR applied to glycomaterials
  • Modeling: Computational methods and capabilities for glycomaterials
  • Research: GlycoMIP scholar lunch-hour presentations and discussion

Who Should Attend:

  • Graduate students and post-doctoral researchers who are new to glycomaterials and seek an overview of the science and techniques, or who may wish to use GlycoMIP facilities to conduct research
  • Advanced undergraduate students with research experience interested in pursuing graduate studies in the fields of glycoscience or glycomaterials
  • Researchers interested in the synthesis, characterization or computational capabilities of GlycoMIP facilities
  • Industry scientists who are new to glycomaterials science and who seek an overview of the field and available technologies

Applicants should have completed a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, biochemistry or a related field, or are close to finishing in the case of undergraduate applicants, as familiarity with basic chemical concepts will be required.  Applicants also must be working or studying in the US.

Cost and Application Requirements:  There is no cost for the short course, as it is funded by GlycoMIP’s National Science Foundation’s award (DMR-1933525).  The application process is open to individuals working or studying in the U.S.  International applications cannot be considered at this time.  Participants will be selected from completed applications received by the due date of Monday, April 1, 2024.  Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements and expenses.  Travel assistance may be available for attendees from Non-R1/MSI/HBCU universities.
