Fighting diseases of global impact
Our unique research expertise makes us the only institute of its kind in Australia and only one of a handful in the world. We seek to collaborate with leading scientists around the world to build a critical mass around this multidisciplinary research. Global collaboration is essential to achieving our vision to bring forward novel drugs and vaccines to the community.
What is glycomics?
Glycomics is the study of glycomes (the entire complement of sugars, whether free or present in more complex molecules of an organism), including genetic, physiologic, pathologic, and other aspects. The term glycomics comes from the chemical prefix for sweetness or a sugar, "glyco-", and follows the naming convention established by genomics (which deals with genes) and proteomics (which deals with proteins).
