The synBIOcarb European Training Network brings together a diverse team of chemists, structural biologists, biophysicists, cell biologists and protein engineers from across Europe who are pioneering the development of Synthetic Glycobiology, and four SMEs that are leading industrial innovation in glycoscience and protein engineering.
Together, the team are providing 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) with advanced scientific training in enabling technologies that underpin the development and exploitation of glycoscience for diagnostics and targeted drug delivery. Each ESR is contributing to one, or more, of four thematic Work Packages, that have been designed to progress the state-of-the-art in Synthetic Glycobiology. This training complemented by a coordinated programme of industry-relevant transferable skills tuition that will prepare them for future careers in the medical technologies sector.
We hope that though the synBIOcarb programme our ESRs will gain some exceptional research experience that will equip them with the capability to become our next generation of world class scientists.
