Chuan-Fa Chang

Dr. Chuan-Fa Chang started his research work in Glycobiology for his doctorate at Institute of Biological Chemistry, Academia Sinica. He developed new methodologies for carbohydrate organic synthesis and accomplished series of carbohydrate analogs by using exo-glycals as building blocks. He then joined Dr. Chi-Huey Wong’s chemical biology lab as a postdoctoral fellow and worked on discovering glycosidase inhibitors by high-throughput drug screening systems. In 2007, Dr. Chang moved to National Cheng Kung University and initiated his independent research career. He is also the member of Society of Glycobiology (since 2004) and participating investigator of Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG, since 2011). Recently, Dr. Chang is interested in investigating the roles of carbohydrates in infectious disease and the regulation of glycosylation in tumorigenesis and cancer metastasis.

It is my great honor and pleasure to introduce this comprehensive book to readers who are interested in carbohydrates. This book contains 23 excellent chapters written by experts from the fields of chemistry, glycobiology, microbiology, immunology, botany, zoology, as well as biotechnology. According to the topics, methods and targets, the 23 chapters are further divided into five independent sections. In addition to the basic research, this book also offers much in the way of experiences, tools, and technologies for readers who are interested in different fields of Glycobiology. I believe that readers can obtain more than anticipated from this meaningful and useful book.
