Project Proposal

The call HORIZON-EIC-2023-PATHFINDERCHALLENGES-01-03 has been scheduled to close, so this opportunity is no longer current.

We apply multidisciplinary cutting-edge scientific methodologies in the field of Glycosciences. Our primary goal is to decode sugar recognition by glycan-binding proteins, significantly contributing to our understanding of their involvement in various diseases.
In particular, within the European projects that we coordinate, the GLYCOTwinning, we are exploring glycan-protein interactions within the human microbiome in cancer. Our ToolBox includes glycan microarrays, advanced electrophoresis, High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance fuel innovation and open new research avenues for wider dissemination and exploitation.
We offer the capacity to unravel glycan-protein interactions and revolutionise therapeutic approaches to combating various diseases.

Our expertise in Glycosciences is fundamental to extending our knowledge in the field of nutrition. By applying our ToolBox we can contribute significantly to unraveling the complexities of glycan-protein interactions in nutrition-related contexts. Together, we can pave the way for innovative therapeutic approaches and advancements in nutrition research, fostering a healthier future for all.
