Meetings and Nora Baart Stichting Travel Grants
New Frontiers Symposium on Translational Glycoscience - November 18-19 (online) registration deadline November 1

News from the Dutch Glycobiology Platform, one of the sections of the NVBMB:

This year's New Frontiers symposium at Radboudumc will be dedicated to the future of Glycoscience. A dynamic & inspiring event with varied presentations, short talks, poster sessions & awards and much more.

This online symposium gathers national and international leading scientists to share their vision on the future of Translational Glycoscience. It will cover molecular life science developments in various diseases including genetics disorders, cancer, neurodevelopmental disorders, infectious diseases, as well as avenues for nutrition, health and aging. The symposium is aimed at both junior researchers as well as faculty members and is organized by the RIMLS and Radboud Consortium for Glycoscience.

Travel grants awarded for international internships

The NVBMB and Nora Baart Stichting (NBS) have awarded travel grants for an internship abroad to the following students:

Anne Flier (Biomedical Sciences, Utrecht University) will visit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston to investigate the immune system in pancreatic cancer.

Luuk Broeils (Cancer, Stem cells and Developmental Biology, Utrecht University) will perform an internship at the Karolinska Intitutet in Solna, Sweden to study enhancers in pancreatic cancer.

Tomas Post (Medical Biology, Radboud University Nijmegen) will visit the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY to evaluate the use and effectivity of nanoimmunotherapeutics in SARS-CoV2 infections.
