Laboratory assistant at the Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG) and the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM)

About Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG)

Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG) is a Danish National Research Center devoted to the study of diseases caused by defects in the biosynthesis and structure of complex carbohydrates. Currently, CCG comprises five research groups and hosts about 10 post docs and 15 PhD students in addition to Master students and guest researchers.
CCG strives be a leader in glycosciences in pioneering transformation of the field towards wider integration into main stream cell biology by developing experimental strategies, informatics approaches, and sustainable resources amenable not only to experts. These initiatives include GlycoCRISPR, GlycoDisplay (GAGOme), GlycoDesign, and GlycoInteract. We aim to facilitate discovery of diseases caused by altered glycosylation, develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and identify new ways to design and produce improved glycoprotein drugs.

CCG is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and training Center located on the 10th floor of the new Mærsk Tower science building within the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM). CCG has state-of-the-art facilities for mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, cell engineering, and glycan arrays, and the senior leaders hold diverse expertise in all areas of glycosciences. Our core valuables include glycoproteome data and bioinformatics tools, validated gene editing tools, glycoengineered cell libraries, and design matrices for recombinant production of glycotherapeutics. CCG hosts an international seminar series, PhD courses in glycobiology and gene editing, and participates in ICMMs education program. CCG also houses a spinout (GlycoDisplay ApS) dedicated to develop improved glycoprotein drugs.
