FOR2953 Annual Meeting & Glycoscience Teaching Workshop 2021
September 27th 29th, Hannover, Germany
The Annual Meeting 2021 of the DFG Research Unit FOR2953 was held in Hannover on September 27-28. After so many virtual events, we were thrilled that all project teams could meet in-person. Each team provided oral and poster presentations to give an overview on their projects and to discuss recent results. We enjoyed not only excellent presentations, but also what we had missed over the last 16 month: The vivid and inspiring scientific exchanges during coffee breaks and poster sessions. Organized as a satellite of the Annual Meeting, the Glycoscience Teaching Workshop of the DFG Research Unit FOR2953 took place at the Hannover Medical School on September 28-29, 2021. Aiming at training our PhD students and postdocs in glycoscience, the workshop provided insight into protein glycosylation, glycosphingolipid biology and glycoanalytics. Stimulating lectures by six leading glycoexperts, along with discussions and a Meet the Speakers Dinner set the frame for intensive training and networking.
Many thanks to our excellent keynote speakers Katrine Schjoldager (Denmark), Christian Thiel (Germany), Giovanni D’Angelo (Switzerland), Manfred Wuhrer (Netherlands), Mario Schubert (Austria) and Hans Bakker (Germany).
