  • The third edition of the Structural Glycoscience Summer School took place in Grenoble, on July 2nd to 4th. It introduced and trained young scientists, from a chemistry or biology background to the most up-to-date approaches for determining the structural and dynamic properties of carbohydrates, glycan binding receptors, along with the analysis of their complexes.
  • Herman Overkleeft, from Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Leiden University, Netherlands, is the 9th invited speaker participating to the Glyco@Events. The event will take place on Friday, July 6th at Nanobio building.

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.
