   The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. Kamil Godula, UC-San Diego, "Chemical Tools for Engineering Glycan Interactions at the Cell-Matrix Interface"

Key Lecture Points

. Synthetic glycoconjugate materials inconjunction with membrane engineering approachesenable precision tailoring of glycocalyxcomplexity with respect to the structure andorganization of glycan determinants
. Chemical glycoengineering allows forinvestigation the effects of glycan receptorpresentation at the glycocalyx interface inInfluenza A-host cell interactions.
. Glycocalyx engineering enables tuning of growthfactor activity at the surface of stem cells tomanipulate their differentiation
