About Me

I sold Glycomix Ltd to Carbosynth Ltd in 2016 and now work for Carbosynth as Scientific Director Biopolymers with the specific task of setting up a polysaccharide division in the company.  We have just completed a 'Toolbox' covering polysaccharide classification, applications, extraction/purification, structural analysis (primary, secondary, tertiary) and a review section covering polysaccharides from plants, algae, lichens, microbes, fungi and animal tissues.  This includes also a catalogue of polysaccharide products.

I formed Glycomix in 2007 following the successful sale of Dextra Laboratories, now a wholly owned subsidiary of New Zealand Pharmaceuticals and bring many years of experience to the management of chemistry and the life sciences. As joint founder of Dextra Laboratories I was a director of the team that developed Dextra into a seriously successful Glycobiology company with a catalogue of key research carbohydrates and a specialist custom synthesis business focussed on sugar chemistry.

As a senior research manager at Tate & Lyle Research I helped to bring a number of important projects to market including Xanthan Gum and Sucralose. I was also in the research team lead by Professor Sir Dai Rees in Edinburgh that demonstrated how polysaccharides form networks and highly organized structures in living tissues which have had enormous significance in the food and life science industries.

In the science of carbohydrates I have a particular interest in the chemistry of carbohydrate polymers with over 30 papers, books and patents to date.

About Me

Pedro Cintas (Moreno is my mother's name, which is usually added in most names of Spaniards and Latin Americans) teaches general chemistry and organic chemistry since 1990 at the University of Extremadura, Badajoz campus, Spain. He earned a Ph.D degree in carbohydrate chemistry (1987, mentors: Juan C. Palacios and M. Avalos); post-doctoral activities: University of Geneva (Switzerland) on asymmetric synthesis of N-alkylated amino acids (1989-1990; mentor: Wolfgang Oppolzer).

Research interests: carbohydrates as chiral scaffolds; green activation technologies focused on ultrasound and microwaves; computational chemistry; asymmetric methodologies.

About Me

I am a synthetic carbohydrate chemist with a long interest in the mechanism of the glycosylation reaction.  I am at the National Research Council of Canada, the Institute for Biological Sciences, where my group synthesizes predominantly glycoconjugates for immunological studies.  We make glycolipids, glycoamino acids for glycopeptides, oligosaccharide fragments of cell surface carbohydrates typically from bacteria and work on protecting group chemistry.  We have ongoing projects in adjuvant development, sialidase inhibitors, innate immunity modulators, glycopeptide vaccines and glycosylation chemistry.

About Me

Good day everyone! I'm a young chemist from Malaysia. Obtained my BSc (Honours) Industrial Chemistry degree from Universiti Putra Malaysia, Malaysia in 2010. During my undergraduate studies i worked on enzymatic modification of sugars. Then pursued my graduate studies at the same institute under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Basyaruddin Abdul Rahman from Malaysian Genome Institute. I am also a National Science Fellowship holder from Malaysia for a duration of 2011 till now. In 2011, i worked as a research specialist at College of Biological Science, University of Minnesota, USA under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Romas Kazlauskas, an expert in enzyme engineering graduating from MIT, USA. My work revolves around creating biodegradable surfactants and their interaction with cells as a potential pharmaceutical product.
