GlycoUniverse is this year’s proud sponsor of the ICO Young Investigators award given to Dr. Nuria Martínez Sáez for her work in the field of carbohydrates. Together with Prof. Dr. David Crich, who received the Roy L. Whistler International Award in Carbohydrate Chemistry, Dr. Martínez Sáez opened the conference with a fantastic lecture entitled “Tn antigen structural insights for engineering MUC1-glycopeptides that offer a new via in cancer-fighting”. Congratulations to both of this year’s awardees!
