Novel Protecting Group Strategies in the Synthesis of Oligosaccharides
The thesis focuses on synthesis strategies in oligosaccharide campaigns, and the influence of protecting groups.
Total Synthesis of Alginate and Zwitterionic Sp1 Oligosaccharides
The work in this thesis has been focused on two subjects. The first is the assembly of alginate oligosaccharides and the generation of building blocks for the enzymatic synthesis of alginate, and the second is the total synthesis of large fragments of the zwitterionic SP1 polysaccharide.
Zwitterionic oligosaccharides: charging the immune system
How are carbohydrates processed by the immune system? Can carbohydrates be used to trigger T-cells against other conjugated antigens? Can they be used as adjuvants?
Vici grant for Jeroen Codée: ‘I want to understand how sugars are formed’
Although sugars are widely used in biological and medical research, their synthesis is still badly understood. Jeroen Codée has received a Vici grant of 1.5 million euros for systematically studying the production of sugars. ‘I want to genuinely understand the reactions.’
