Call for abstract - Glyco Meeting "Glycans and Proteoglycans"

from October 18, 2017 to October 19, 2017

18th-19th October 2017
The international conference GlycoMeeting "Glycans & Proteoglycans: The Sweet and Smart Molecules of the 21th Century" will take place in Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy on October 18 and 19, 2017.
On October 18 and 19 will take place the 2017 Joint Workshop of the International Associated Laboratory Nancy-Dundee (SulFo- & Glycosyltransferase ENzymes, SFGEN), the Fédération de Recherche 3209 (Biologie Moléculaire Cellulaire et Thérapeutique, BMCT) and the CNRS-UL unit 7365 (Ingénierie Moléculaire & Physiopathologie Articulaire, IMoPA).

This international meeting will be held in Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy, close to the town of Nancy (Lorraine, France).

The major objective of this workshop is to promote the field of glycosciences as a mainstream science crossing disciplines from biology to chemistry and biophysics, to emphasize the great potential of glyco-drugs, and to present most recent major technological advances in glycobiology. It will gather most renown european glycobiologists and gagophiles.

The meeting will be introduced by a keynote lecture by Anne Imberty (CERMAV, France), presented as a TEDx­-talk. More than ten European speakers are already confirmed.

In addition, it is a great opportunity for glycobiologists to present their favorite glycans as "My glycans in 300 seconds", or as short communication and posters.

The ambition of this meeting is also to promote the French glycobiology as so members of GFG are highly encouraged to contribute.
