GIA celebrates launch at the UofA

The Glycomics Institute of Alberta (GIA) celebrated our launch in October with talks from internationally recognized scientists at the University of Alberta and around the globe. Dr. Lara Mahal, the CERC in Glycomics and Director of the Institute, also held a public lecture centering on the sugar code as it relates to health and disease. Meet the sugars to learn more about all the ways they can help or hinder us.

Helia Dehghan Harati with the Mahal Lab, Jeremies Ibanga with the Sipione Lab and Ghazaleh Eskandari Sedighi with the Macauley Lab presented outstanding posters and were each awarded copies of the newest edition of Essentials of Glycobiology as well as a GlycoGang mug. Congratulations to all and thank you to everyone who participated in this momentous occasion with us. To download the full program, click here. In case you missed out, the talks are available to watch on our official YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@giaglyco

GIA will continue to foster collaboration across disciplines in translational glycobiology to address gaps in our understanding of health and disease. To become a member of GIA or to inquire about how you too can get involved in this exciting field, please use the contact form on our website.
