2021 Glyco@Alps Scientific Day

on the June 7, 2021

Digital meeting

The Glyco@ALPS project is completing its first cycle of transverse research initiated by IDEX in 2017, thanks to ANR funding. We invite you to participate in our Scientific Day on June, 7, 2021, which aims to offer a snapshot of the research conducted over the past three years.
Come and discover the rich work of our research community on the theme!

Given the health constraints, we propose this day in a digital format on Zoom.
It is open and registration is free.
