Greetings from the Chair

Alexei Demchenko

Greetings Everyone!

Greetings everyone! My name is Alexei Demchenko, and I am excited to continue serving as the Chair of the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (ACS CARB) in 2021.

Who are we?

The Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (CARB) is an eclectic, comprehensive and global technical division of the ACS. We continually strive to be the premier society for carbohydrate chemists and chemists alike with efforts to continually increase membership. Our mission is to foster and promote the advancement of the field of carbohydrate chemistry and chemical glycobiology (or molecular glycoscience) with a heavy emphasis on highlighting the amazing scientists and people who drive it!  We embrace the interdisciplinary nature of carbohydrates and strive to be encompassing and engaging in our efforts.
