American Society for Neurochemistry - SFG Affiliate
ASN is a professional society for neurochemists and neuroscientists from North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean, whose research concerns the role and interactions of small molecules (proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, lipids, sugars) in the development, growth, function and pathology of the nervous system.

Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG)

CDG CARE (Community Alliance and Resource Exchange)
The CDG CARE  is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization founded by parents seeking information and support for a group of disorders known as Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation. Their mission is to provide information and support to families affected by CDG and to advocate for and fund scientific research to advance the diagnosis and treatment of CDG.

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) - Official Member Society
FASEB's Mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to member societies and collaborative advocacy. It is the nation's largest coalition of biomedical researchers, representing 26 scientific societies and over 100,000 researchers from around the world and is recognized as the policy voice of biological and biomedical researchers.

Functional Glycomics Gateway
The Functional Glycomics Gateway is a comprehensive resource for functional glycomics research brought to you by the Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG). Use this site to access our extensive databases, to request CFG resources and services, and to visit our archives of research publications and editorials.

The MHE Research Foundation - SFG Affiliate
The MHE Research Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization for the support of researchers, families and physicians dealing with (MHE) Multiple Hereditary Exostoses (MO) Multiple Osteochondroma a rare genetic bone disease.

Programs of Excellence in Glycosciences (PEG)
The goal of the Programs of Excellence in Glycosciences (PEG) is to build investigative capacity in glycosciences, and translate emerging discoveries into potential new diagnostics and clinical applications relevant to heart, lung, and blood research. The Shared Resources Cores funded at each location are tasked with generating glyco-analytical tools as resources to be made available to the entire scientific community as well as developing resources to train a new generation of investigators to be fluent in glycan chemistry and biomedical sciences.

Rare Disease Day - Official Partner with SFG
Rare Disease Day is an international advocacy day to bring widespread recognition of rare diseases as a global health challenge. The day is celebrated on the last day of February every year.
