28th Symposium on Glycosaminoglycans – September 27th – 29th
Following the interruption last year due to the pandemic, the series of annual Symposia resumes with the 28th edition, which will take place on San Servolo Island, in Venice Lagoon. Eminent specialists from all over the world are invited to discuss both current and emerging topics of interest in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, pharmacology, and in the clinical applications of heparin and other glycosaminoglycans. In particular, sessions devoted to COVID-19 and Glycosaminoglycan Research, as well as others covering both basic and applied research aspects have been considered. The subjects of interest cover biosynthesis, structural characterization and protein interactions, biological functions, pharmaceutical and clinical aspects including anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activity.
The symposium will have a hybrid character, allowing both in-presence and virtual participation. However, as per tradition, participation is only by invitation.
