Hematology and Glycobiology
Published on: July 16, 2009
To the Editor:
Earlier this year, the NHLBI convened a working group workshop on
the roles of glycans in hemostasis, inflammation, and vascular biology.
The Working Group Report has just been published in Glycobiology.
Given the extensive scientific overlaps between the fields of
hematology and glycobiology, this report could be of interest to many
of your readers. The hope is that it will not only potentially result
in new NHLBI funding initiatives, but also enhance collaborations
between hematologists and glycobiologists.
