Peter Seeberger is one of the world’s leading scientists in glycomics, the study of carbohydrates that chemists also identify as sugar. Working alongside chemists, biochemists, and immunologists has allowed Seeberger to achieve biological insights on the synthetic advances of sugar and furthermore, develop automated synthesis of complex sugars in order to investigate synthesized compounds. Seeberger has published over 250 papers, two edited books, and 24 book chapters. He has received many honors, among those being the Claude S. Hudson Award in Carbohydrate Chemistry, the Körber European Science Award, and the Inhoffen medal of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research.
