Sriram Neelamegham received grants to fund his research focused on developing a systems level understanding of cellular glycosylation processes, using a combination of mathematical modeling methods and experiments. Such work is important since glycans, or carbohydrates expressed on cells, either absolutely control or finely tune a number of biological processes in human during health and disease. The studies being pursued are thus important for biotechnology and medical research. Collaborators on the awards include Professor Jun Qu (Pharmaceutical Sciences), Michael Buck (Biochemistry), G. Ekin Atilla-Gokcumen (Chemistry) and Lara Mahal (Chemistry, New York University).
