Japan’s Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience has Awarded the CNM a Research Grant
The Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience’s Board of Directors has selected the UCSB Center for Nanomedicine to receive research grant funding to further explore the interface between pathogens and their hosts at the molecular and nanoscale levels.
The Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience was established in 1992 by Masakane Mizutani and provides research grants worldwide to outstanding research proposals. The Foundation’s aim is to promote worldwide progress of glycoscience, especially that of glycoconjugates, and to assist in international exchanges between Japanese and foreign glycoscientists. Glycoscience includes the interface of how pathogens and hosts first meet, the first ‘handshakes’, which determine infection and host morbidity.
