Recent Glycodendrimersomes Work Highlighted in PNAS Commentary

A recent paper from the group on the functional pairing between glycoconjugates and galectins has been highlighted in a Commentary in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), written by Kamil Godula of UC San Diego. The original paper, also published in PNAS and led by Qi Xiao, unravels intricate aspects of the mechanism underlying the interactions between the cell glycan and proteins in its environment.
