Eleven years ago, I moved from Nagoya City University to RIKEN soon after receiving a JSCR young scientist award. For me, the past 11 years is the activity at RIKEN itself. Looking back on the past years, I was thinking how I address the remaining issues in the glycoscience. Sometimes I felt a guilty for not contributing to the glycoscience field so much. Nonetheless, I can say with my confidence, that we tried to tackle with the unsolved issues in the glycoscience field. Here I would like to write down our study on lectin specificity, N-glycosylation/N-glycan maturation, and separation of isometric glycans as a proof of our activity.
