Anne is Head of Life Sciences at Imperial College, and is a Member of the BBSRC Council and Strategy Board. She is a world-leading authority on analysis of sugars in health and disease, and the emerging field of glycomics. Her lab has used ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry to answer diverse biological questions such as how pathogens camouflage themselves against our immune system, and how developing foetuses avoid being rejected. Recent studies of biomedical relevance support both drug discovery and vaccine development.

If you have ever wondered just what sugars are up to and why they might be relevant to you, this is a talk to attend.
