Dear Carbohydrate researchers and enthusiasts,
In this first CCC newsletter of 2021 we pay attention to four topics:
- PhD defense Fangjie Gu, she explored the metabolization of indigestible carbohydrates, human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) and isomalto/maltopolysaccharides (IMMPs), by infant or adult gut microbiota using in vivo or in vitro study approaches.
- PhD defense Lianghui Cheng, Lianghui focused on the structure-function relationships of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), which are non-digestible carbohydrates in human milk with highly diverse structures.
- Summer Course Glycosciences (online edition). The 16th Summer Course Glycosciences will take place online on 10, 11, 17 and 18 June 2021
- The online CCC Spring symposium will take place on April 8th, 2021. It is now possible to register for the symposium!
