Welcome to the Translational Glycomics Center
The Translational Glycomics Center is part of the Blood Research Institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We focus our efforts on platelet and glycan based research under the direction of Karin Hoffmeister, MD. The TGC hosts an annual Glycomics Symposium each spring, featuring nationally renowned speakers. The center is also part of the first NHLBI established consortium of four sites to focus on career development of the next generation of biomedical investigators in glycoscience. The ultimate goal of the consortium is to push glycoscience from a niche research area into the forefront of mainstream medical research.
