National Career Development Consortium for Excellence in Glycosciences

The National Career Development Consortium for Excellence in Glycosciences was created when the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) awarded four career development grants to premier institutions, each of whom have created an independent local program to train the next generation of researchers in glycosciences - the study of complex carbohydrate molecules and their roles in human development and health.

The four centers form the National Consortium, sharing their resources, training opportunities and expertise across campuses.

JOHNS HOPKINS-CLEVELAND CLINIC PROGRAM FOR CAREER DEVELOPMENT IN GLYCOSCIENCES

“Immersive training in the Glycosciences” is a highly collaborative training program involving glycoscientists and clinical researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, and the Cleveland Clinic. The goal of our training program is to support the transition of scholars (physician scientists and post-doctoral fellows) into independent positions studying the role of glycans in heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. Scholar development will be supported by didactic and laboratory training, dual mentorship, professional development, and unique networking opportunities. Research areas include inflammatory diseases, cardiomyopathy, heart failure, ischemic heart disease, pulmonary and vascular injury, hypertension, obesity and diabetes, regenerative medicine, and blood disorders.
