EU UGM 2022 – Structural Determinants Regulating Viral Spike Glycosylation and Biomolecular Interactions

Discover the groundbreaking insights from our latest webinar where we delve into the fascinating world of viral glycosylation and its implications for vaccine development! Learn how the structural biophysics of host-pathogen interactions play a crucial role in understanding viral infections and immune responses. Weston Strewe will take you on a journey through the intricate dance of sugars on virus surfaces, explaining how these glycan shields help viruses evade immune detection and why this knowledge is vital for creating effective structure-based vaccines.

In the second half of the webinar, explore the cutting-edge methodologies used to study these complex glycoproteins, including mass spectrometry and HPLC. See how our research has uncovered significant differences in glycan complexity between virus-derived materials and vaccine candidates, and understand how these findings could revolutionize vaccine design. Get an exclusive look at how mass photometry is being used to complement traditional mass spectrometry, providing deeper insights into protein interactions. Don’t miss this opportunity to stay ahead in the rapidly evolving field of glycoprotein research and vaccine development!
