Our interdisciplinary research groups are led by 22 tenure-track faculty members. These groups combine experimental (analytical chemsitry, biochemistry, chemical and enzymatic synthesis, mass spectrometry, molecular biology, and NMR spectroscopy) and computational (genomics, glycomics, metabolomics, and molecular modeling) methods to study diverse areas of glycoscience:
Our research groups interact closely with one another to take full advantage of the knowledge and experience in all aspects of glycoscience available at the CCRC.
CCRC faculty members hold joint appointments in the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Plant Biology, and Plant Pathology. Students can apply to conduct their graduate research, undergraduate projects, or internships with center faculty. The CCRC trains postdoctoral research associates and visiting scientists from the U.S. and around the world in the principles, methods, and analytical techniques used to study complex carbohydrates.
The CCRC is supported by federal, state, industrial, and foundation funds and receives around $15 million annually in research funds. We are home to UGAs Cancer Center and the National Institutes of Health/ National Center for Research Resources for Biomedical Glycomics and for Integrated Glycotechnology.
