2023 Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting Invitation

Join us for the 2023 Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 29, 2023, in the Thad Cochran Research Center at UM.

The Glycoscience Center of Research Excellence (GlyCORE) invites researchers interested in glycoscience to submit an abstract and attend the 2023 Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 29, 2023, in the Thad Cochran Research Center at the University of Mississippi.  Registration is required, but no registration fee will be charged.

The Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting is intended to bring together glycoscientists from across the region to share their work, learn more about our broad and rapidly growing field, and start new ties and new collaborations across disciplines. The Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting features research from investigators across our region, as well as bringing in exciting scientists from across the country to share their work and their insights. This meeting is hosted and sponsored by GlyCORE, the region’s dedicated glycoscience research center. Established in 2020, GlyCORE houses staffed research cores with specialized instrumentation to support both our group of glycoscience investigators at the University of Mississippi, as well as glycoscientists across the Mid-South region.

The Organizing Committee intends for the Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting to be a collegial and welcoming event, both to support existing glycoscientists across the region as well as to serve as a useful introduction to the field for researchers and trainees. This year’s program will include researchers across many facets of glycoscience, from synthetic chemistry to glycobiology.

To maximize accessibility the meeting will be offered both in-person and virtually via Zoom for both presenters and attendees.  For more information, please refer to the GlyCORE Mid-South Glycoscience Meeting webpage, or contact the project coordinator, Karin King Ballering at
