Chemical Tools and Strategies for Probing Cell Surface Interactions

Carolyn Bertozzi is interested in cell surface interactions that contribute to human health and disease. Much of her research involves cell surface oligosaccharides – biopolymers that contribute to cell surface recognition and cell-cell communication. Bertozzi and her team focus on creating new platform technologies for studying these processes, as well as applying chemical approaches to study systems that elude more conventional methods of biological inquiry. Current projects are in the areas of cancer, inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.
