Lehrman Lab

The Lehrman Lab uses biochemical approaches to study the functions of sugars and sugar-polymers coupled to proteins and lipids, and as free molecules. Our work involves broken-cell systems, living cultured cells, and animals. This area of research, known as Glycobiology, is an emerging field that encompasses most aspects of biology and medicine.


Our laboratory is part of the emerging field of glycobiology, which focuses on the molecular interactions of sugars distinct from their nutritional role.
