    Due to COVID19 we have to modify the organization of the 24th International Symposium on Plant Lipids.An E-Symposium will be held on July 7 and the symposium is postponed to 2022, July 10-15.
  • 8th Warren Workshop
    from August 26, 2020 to August 29, 2020
    We have the regret to cancel the 8th Warren Workshop on recent advances in glycoconjugate analysis and bioinformatics due to COVID19 outbreak.The workshop is supported by Glyco@Alps and Alliance Campus Rhodanien.

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.
