UGA Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC)

The CCRC's 18 interdisciplinary research groups study the structures and functions of the complex carbohydrates of plants, microbes, and animals to determine the role of carbohydrates in growth and development, host-pathogen interactions, and disease processes. These groups develop and use advanced analytical techniques, including mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy, chemical and enzymatic synthesis, computer modeling, cell and molecular biology, and immunocytochemistry. The members of each research group interact closely with one another to take full advantage of the knowledge and experience in all aspects of complex carbohydrate science available at the CCRC.
