Research Institute for Microbial Diseases Seminar -- Unraveling the Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation

2009-10-20 (Tue) 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Unraveling the Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation: a biochemical challenge. From bench to bedside

Professor Ronald A. Wevers comes to us from the Nijmegen Medical Centre in the Netherlands, well-known as a research center in genetic diseases. Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG) are a disease group featuring psychomotor retardation and muscular hypotonia caused by N-linked oligosaccharide. Dr. Wevers discovered recently that some types of CDG match those of muscular dystrophy caused by dystroglycan sugar chain abnormality.

Lecturer: Professor Ronald A. Wevers, Department of Laboratory Medicine, Radboud University, Nijmegen Medical Centre, The Netherlands
