Join the Innovation Gateway in Athens, GA for this month's Startup Stories seminar!  Dr. Kausar Samli will present Glycosensors and Diagnostics.

Glycosensors & Diagnostics (G&D) is an Athens based biotechnology company co-founded by Prof. Robert J. Woods and Dr. Lori Yang to develop cost-effective  technologies for the assessment of glycosylation profiles of therapeutic glycoproteins and antibodies.  The commercial potential of therapeutic glycoproteins such as EPO is enormous, but this success can be tempered by manufacturing problems and quality control failures that lead to failure of product batches.    G&D's GlycoSense™ platform and Lectenz® reagents seek to balance the need between speed and resolution for the quality control of glycoprotein production. 

Dr. Samli will talk about how G&D was formed and how the company has effectively leveraged state and federal commercialization grants to fund the development of its lead products.  We'll also hear about the company's future direction and some of the lessons learned along the way.  We hope to see you there!
