Virtual Structural Glycoscience Summer School 2020

from June 17, 2020 to June 18, 2020

The Virtual Structural Glycoscience Summer School will be held on June 17th and 18th, 2020. Due to Covid19 pandemic, the event will be online. The Summer School is co-organized by the Glyco@Alps CDP project from Idex UGA and the SynBIOcarb European network.
Glycoscience is a rapidly expanding and exciting field that is relevant to many areas of chemistry, biology and medicine. Structures of Glycan or Protein/Glycans complexes are of direct importance since they are key structural elements in cell and in signalling events on their surface. The workshop will introduce and train young scientists, from a chemistry or biology background, in the most up-to-date approaches for determining the structural and dynamic properties of carbohydrates, glycan binding receptors, and analysis of their complexes. Young researchers from Grenoble and from whole Europe will have conferences from international speakers, will participle to hands-on in modeling and experimental techniques, and will visit the beamlines at ESRF and the IBS platforms.

This workshop will be validated by 2 ECTS by the EDCSV doctoral school.

This year, the Structural Glycoscience summer school will be virtual but there will be limited places for practical in modeling and glycobioinformatics. To participate please send an email to
