GlyCoCan is a Marie Curie European Training Network composed of 15 leading European partners in the fields of glycobiology, glycol-immunology and biomarker research. It provides a multidisciplinary training, bridging academic and industrial sectors, for a new generation of researchers in the young field of glyco-oncology.

The main scientific objective of the network is enhancing our understanding on the structure-function relationship of glycosylation in colorectal cancer (CRC) for finding improved diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers and pave the way for novel therapeutic targets.
