Assoc. Prof. Morten Thaysen-andersen
A/Prof Morten Thaysen-Andersen heads the Analytical Glycoimmunology group at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. His research program aims to advance our understanding of the human innate immune system and immune-related diseases including microbial infections, inflammation and cancer. His team develops and applies powerful glycomics and glycoproteomics technologies using advanced mass spectrometry while also drawing on analytical tools in protein and carbohydrate chemistry and methods in immunology, structural biology and molecular biology to unravel glycobiological processes of the innate immune system.
