15th Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine Symposium
14-16 June 2023 | i3S



Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the 15th Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine symposium, organised by the Glycobiology in Cancer group at the Institute for Research and Innovation in Health (i3S) of the University of Porto.

The Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine symposia were the first and main international multidisciplinary conferences set up to study the relevance of glycobiology to immunology, medicine and clinical practice.  The symposia have been organized, since 2001, by the Royal Society of Medicine with the aim of widening clinical participation and to actively promote and foster fruitful interaction and collaboration between glycobiologists and clinicians.

The 15th Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine symposium aims to provide an international forum for scientists and clinicians to disseminate the findings of current leading-edge research in both novel and classic fields of glycobiology. The program is devoted to address and integrate different aspects of glycobiology in physiological and pathological settings, including immunology, infection, cancer and neurological disorders. In addition to internationally renowned speakers, a number of talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts, creating a stimulating discussion platform to address current and future challenges of glycobiology and glycotechnology.

We look forward to welcome you at the historic city of Porto, a World heritage site by UNESCO. We sincerely hope you will enjoy the conference and find it both enlightening and gratifying.

Celso A. Reis
Conference Chairman
