Main research interests

  • Development of glycome-based glycan microarrays for interrogating glycomes and proteomes leading to: 1) glycan ligand discovery and function; and 2) unraveling of glycan-recognition systems
  • Endogenous and microbial glycan recognition systems of biomedical and biotechnological interest and glycan-mediated microbe-host interactions
  • Antibodies for cancer diagnosis and therapy
  • Structure-function integrative approaches combining glycan-microarrays with complementary methodologies such as X-Ray crystallography to characterize glycan-protein interaction
