Glycomics > About CCG
Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG) was established in 2008 by Professor Henrik Clausen, and was appointed a Center of Excellence by the Danish National Research Foundation in 2012.
CCG is currently located in the Panum Building 24.6 at Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, but will move to the 10th floor of the brand new Mærsk Tower at Nørre Campus in 2017.
Around 40 scientists, students and technicians are presently working at CCG. Additionally, the center hosts about 10 visiting researchers from Denmark and abroad at any given time.
Vision & Mission
CCG aims to be a world leader in glycosciences and make this research area approachable to non-experts in order to:
- facilitate discovery of diseases caused by altered glycosylation
- develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools
- identify new ways to design and produce improved glycoprotein drugs
