About this group

Tissue Glycomics March 2024

Inspired by the huge impact that small changes in glycan structures (complex carbohydrate molecules)  can have on human health, the Tissue Glycomics group is dedicated to study glycosylation in human tissues in health and disease.

Glycans are a fascinating class of biomolecules, known for their chemical complexity and strong implications in, amongst others, immunology, regenerative medicine, virology, and oncology. This interdisciplinary nature drives us to combine glycobiology with cutting-edge mass spectrometry to identify and exploit specific roles of glycoproteins in human (patho)physiology.

Due to our interdisciplinarity and technological focus, we frequently participate in (inter)national collaborations, and enthusiastically host visiting researchers and internship students in our lab.
