Description: The objective of this research career program is to create a national Consortium that focuses on career development of the next generation of biomedical investigators in glycosciences. The ultimate goal of the Consortium is to transform and democratize glycosciences from a super-specialized research domain into the mainstream of biology and clinical translation such that glycans become an integral component of future scholars’/investigators’ scientific thinking, thus creating a pathway for major scientific breakthroughs specifically in heart, lung, blood and sleep (HLBS) sciences.
