Steven Lindheim-

We collaborate on understanding the effect of the non-human sialic acid N-Glycolylneuraminic acid and antibodies directed against this xenoglycan on human fertility.

Ajit Varki -

We collaborate on exploring the roles of sialic acids in immunity, sialome evolution in the context of host pathogen co-evolution.

Nissi Varki -

We collaborate on ways to document sialic acid variants and their different types of glycosidic linkages in mammalian tissues.

Biswa Choudhury -

We collaborate on characterization of glycan composition and mass spectrometry.

Elina Zuniga -

We collaborate on testing the effect of glycan mismatches between LCMV viral envelope glycans, mouse glycans and anti-glycan antibodies on infection in vivo.
