About the Proteoglycan Forum

The Proteoglycan Forum (PG Forum) was first organized by Professor Yanagishita in 1997, with an intention of furthering the knowledge on glycoscience and establishing a network of scientists who are interested in studying proteoglycans and related biological molecules by increasing exchanges between researchers working on the complex carbohydrate molecule, proteoglycans.

The format of PG Forum has been mainly series of seminars presented by scientists invited from both within Japan and abroad. The extensive discussion during the seminar provided unique opportunity for exchanging most current research information and identification of various experimental resources.

To continue this activity, the PG Forum will be held every year.
