A GlycoMIP Education & Outreach Event

The GlycoMIP Summer School offers an immersive, in-person experience for students interested in studying glycomaterial science.  The experience will include classroom lectures, laboratory demonstrations, hands-on laboratory activities, data collection and analysis and social events.  Excellent on-campus room and board will be offered.  For those wishing to stay in a hotel, a block of rooms will be available at the on-campus Inn at Virginia Tech.  All Summer School activities, including room and board, are within walking distance.  Content is tailored to graduate students and junior faculty as well as junior scientists within the private sector or a national lab.

GlycoMIP staff will advise students on travel arrangements and will be available throughout the program.  Travel grants may be available for those seeking assistance for room and board expenses.  Interested students must complete an application by the February 15, 2022 due date.
