ICB&DD Annual Symposium: Frontiers in Glycosciences and Chemical Biology
Start Date: 10/11/2013Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Date: 10/11/2013End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:
The Institute of Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery Annual Symposium is thematically focused on cutting-edge advances in chemical biology, structural and computational biology, cancer and infectious diseases, and drug discovery. The Symposium invites renowned scholars in the field as well as highly recognized researchers on campus to present their exciting accomplishments and stimulate exchange of innovative ideas among speakers, faculty, staff, and students on campus as well as researchers at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, academia and industries in the greater NY metropolitan area.

The Plenary Lecturers this year are:

Dr. Linda Hsieh-Wilson (Professor of Chemistry, California Institute of Technology). "The Sweeter Side of Cellular Signaling: Elucidating the Structure-Function Relationships of Carbohydrates in the Brain"

Dr. Gerald Hart (Professor and Director of Biological Chemistry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine). "Nutrient Regulation of Signaling & Transcription: Roles of O-GlcNAcylation in Diabetes, Cancer and Neurodegeneration"

Dr. Richard Cummings (Professor and Chair, Department of Biochemistry, Emory University). "Genetic and Biochemical Insights into Roles of Glycoconjugates in Animal Biology and Disease"

Dr. Nicole Sampson (Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, Stony Brook University). "Mycobacteria on Steroids: Metabolite Profiling and Enzyme Function"

Dr. Jeffrey Esko (Professor of Molecular and Cellular Medicine, University of California San Diego).  "Heparan Sulfate: Light at the End of the Chain"

Dr. Geert-Jan Boons (Professor of Chemistry, University of Georgia). "Glycoscience: Downsizing or Oversizing?

Dr. David Green (Associate Professor, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Stony Brook University). "Rational engineering of anti-viral lectins targeting HIV"

There will be Poster sessions on recently completed and ongoing projects conducted in the ICB&DD member's laboratories as well as relevant research laboratories in the area.
