Systems glycoengineering

My research focus is to improve the efficacy of therapeutic glycoproteins by engineering glycosylation. The addition of sugars to a protein can greatly influence its ability to fold properly, its stability, and its activity. A quality by design approach is used to ensure that the product is functional. This is accomplished by using computational models of glycosylation and metabolism.
