University of Georgia, Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC)

The Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) was founded at the University of Georgia (UGA) in September 1985 to answer the national need for a center devoted to increasing knowledge of the structures and functions of complex carbohydrates, also known as glycans. The CCRC is home to 17 principal investigators that are funded by various federal agencies and commercial partners. The basic research of Drs. Wells and Tiemeyer, two of these investigators, utilizes multiple -omic technologies to understand how glycans modulate biological functions in development and disease. Glycans play key roles in a broad range of biological recognition and regulatory phenomena -- cellular communication, gene expression, immunology, organism defense mechanisms, growth and development. The goal of the CCRC as a whole is to direct more research attention and investment toward elucidating the chemical structures and biological functions of the glycans involved in these processes, to train more glycoscientists, and to bring together the multidisciplinary expertise and the advanced instrumentation required to serve the scientific community. *
