Why studying sugars matters in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease!

(Canadian Glycomics Network) Each year, more than 25,000 Canadians are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia (Alzheimer Society Canada). A one-year research grant funded through the Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) Networks of Centres of Excellence supports research into how glycomics — the study of sugars in biology — may help unlock clues as to how this debilitating disease arises and point to potential good targets for developing therapeutics to treat the disease.
