Dr. David F. Smith of Emory University talks about glycans, complex carbohydrates or glycans in the human body that are made of many individual sugar molecules and occur in glycoproteins, glycolipids, and other glycoconjugates.

Glycans on the surfaces of human cells are bound by a huge assortment of carbohydrate binding proteins and are also bound by pathogens, including viruses and bacteria. Although the vast numbers of these interactions with the human glycome are important in virtually all aspects of human biology and disease, they are not well understood.
