Dear Midwest Carbohydrate Research Colleagues:

By this letter, I would like to invite you to participate in the 4th Midwest Carbohydrate and Glycobiology Symposium (MCGS), which will be held on October 3 (Friday) and 4 (Saturday), 2008 at Cleveland State University.

This is a registration free symposium. The symposium will cover a broad range of carbohydrate research, such as 1). Glycochemistry: New synthetic methods for the synthesis of carbohydrates, complex oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates, 2). Glycobiology and glyco-patholology, 3). Glycomics and glyco-proteomics, 4). Glyco-medicinal chemistry: Inhibitors and antagonists of carbohydrate-precoessing enzymes and carbohydrate-recognizing proteins, and 5). Glycoengineering and glyco(nano)technology: Synthesis and recognition application of neoglycoconjugates.

MCGS is a great opportunity to meet researchers in the Midwest working on similar problems, while also providing opportunities to present your work. Undergraduate and graduate presentations are very welcomed. Please forward this information to any of your colleagues who are doing carbohydrate research.

If you are able to attend, I would like to request your abstract submission and symposium registration. The deadline for abstract submission is September 19th (Friday), 2008, and the deadline for registration is September 26th (Friday), 2008. Please submit your Word file abstract to my email address at x.sun55@csuohio.edu.

I look forward to meeting you, to sharing new research results, to exchanging new ideas, to making new friends, and to making this symposium successful again.
