The virtual symposium Frontiers in Carbohydrate Synthesis will be held online January 28 and 29, 2021, beginning at 1:00 PM Eastern. This symposium will explore progress made on the synthesis of glycans over the past decade including: catalytic and stereoselective methodologies for preparation of glycans and glycoconjugates; automation of glycan synthesis; and the democratization of glycan synthesis such that ‘specialized experts’ are not required to routinely synthesize these molecules.

Registration opens January 21. Visit this link to learn more and register.
