A multidisciplinary training network for the bioinspired development of glycomimetics tuning the Siglec-Sialoglycan axis

Project description

Researcher training in glyco-immune checkpoints

At the molecular and dynamic level, how do interactions between the immunomodulatory receptors Siglecs and their sialylated cognate ligands contribute to the aetiology of immune-related diseases like cancer? Is it possible to tune this axis to provide new therapeutic approaches? These are questions the EU-funded GLYTUNES project seeks to answer through a multidisciplinary European training network on glyco-immune checkpoints. Specifically, it will address the main priorities concerning the use of innovative methodological, interdisciplinary approaches for the treatment of human diseases. Guided by leaders in their respective fields of research, GLYTUNES involves seven academic partners and four companies (SMEs) from seven European countries. The programme will train 14 early-stage researchers.
