The Gordon Research Seminar on Carbohydrates is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Carbohydrates represent an important class of biomolecules that influence a wide range of biological functions. Implications of carbohydrates in diseases have garnered great attention in recent times; however, incomplete elucidations of structure-to-function limit the ability to develop potent therapeutics. In order to address this limitation, a central platform for discussions and development of novel approaches through a multi-disciplinary effort is needed. The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbohydrates is a forum dedicated exclusively to young scientists to establish network and career developments in the glycoscience community through oral presentations, a career panel, and poster presentations. The goal of the GRS on Carbohydrates is to integrate scientists from diverse backgrounds to drive innovation towards carbohydrate-based therapeutics.
