Welcome to Sialoglyco 2022


The biennial Sialoglyco meeting provides a venue for international researchers to exchange ideas and to detail the chemistry and biology of sialic acid containing glycoconjugates. Previous symposia have been held in Canada, the USA, Europe and Australia. This meeting will be the second Sialoglyco meeting to be held in Japan. Sialoglyco 2022 is a four-day meeting of scientific sessions.

The Sialoglyco 2022 symposium will feature presentations from notable international experts in the chemistry, biochemistry and biology of sialic acids and their conjugates, as well as giving an opportunity to new investigators in this exciting glycoscience area to highlight their research.

 It is with great pleasure that we invite scientists from around the world to participate in Sialoglyco2022, the biennial international conference on sialic acid-related research to be held in the center of Japan, Nagoya. This is the second time that the current series of Sialic Acid meetings will be held in Japan.
 We believe that the location and the sequential meeting format will ensure that we have the ideal setting for social interaction, networking, stimulating scientific discussions, and the initiation of collaborations between the International Sialoglycoscience communities. We look forward to welcoming you to Nagoya, Japan
