Title: "Galectins: emerging glyco-checkpoints linking immune and vascular programs in inflammation and cancer"
Host: Manuel Serrano, PhD
The responsibility for deciphering the biological information encoded by the glycome- the whole repertoire of glycans in cells and tissues- is assigned to endogenous glycan-binding proteins or lectins whose expression is regulated at sites of inflammation and tumor growth. With the goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets in cancer and autoimmune diseases, our laboratory investigates the molecular interactions between glycosylated receptors and glycan-binding proteins, particularly galectins in the control of immune and vascular programs. In the past years, we have identified essential roles for galectin-
