I am a co-PI at the Copenhagen Center for Glycomics where my major focus is to explore the biological role of protein glycosylation in health and disease. In the mammalian cell, protein glycosylation is orchestrated by more than 200 enzyme glycosyltransferases, decorating proteins with different sugar chains expanding the size of the proteome. We explore the function of these glycosyltransferases and their glycan products by precise gene editing strategies where we knockout individual transferases in cells and animal models and use the resulting models to explore and dissect the biology of protein glycosylation.
