  • Global Challenges Science Week
    from June 3, 2019 to June 6, 2019
    Grenoble Alps University organizes the Global Challenges Science Week from June 3rd to 6th at the World Trade Center.
  • Publications on Glycobioinformatics
    on the January 31, 2019
    In the framework of Glyco@Alps WP4, important advances have been performed to provide the international community with glyco-related databases. Four publications deal with three new databases developed thanks to national and international collaborations (DTU, ICBMS and SIB).
  • CarboMet workshop on glycomaterials
    from January 24, 2019 to January 25, 2019
    The CarboMet workshop on glycomaterials took place in CERMAV on January 24th and 25th 2019. Its aim was to explore how the interplay between physics, chemistry, biology and material science can generate highly-defined bio-based glycomaterials.
  • Glyco@Club offered 10 grants for PhD students and young researchers who attended a scientific event to present their work in 2018.
  • Olga Makshakova, researcher, Kazan Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics FRC KazSC RAS, received a Glyco@Alps grant as a guest researcher for two months at CERMAV (Grenoble), molecular and structural glycobiology group.

The diversity and complexity of sugars : new molecules & materials for innovation

Glyco@Alps explores the fascinating structural diversity and complexity of sugars, including those found in the Alpine biodiversity, and focuses on their exploitation for biopharmaceuticals, medical diagnostics, personalized medicine, materials, environmental sustainability and innovative bio-industries

With the involvement of around 100 scientists of different domains, Glyco@Alps will highlight the University Grenoble Alpes as the first glycoscience center in France. Organization of  international summer schools and scientific meetings will insure visibility at the international level. Glyco@Alps also aims at attracting and training the next generation of glycoscientists, with a pluridisciplinary approach and a broad view to environmental and innovation issues.
