Call for abstract

We are pleased to announce 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).


« Glycans & Proteoglycans: The Sweet and Smart Molecules of the 21th Century »

This international meeting will be held the 18th-19th October 2017 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. Registration are open, please visit our website https://lia-frbmct-2017.sciencesconf.org/

The ambition of this meeting is also to promote the French glycobiology and we would like to encourage most warmly members of GFG to contribute.

We look forwards to see you in Nancy, capital of the Dukes of Lorraine, birthplace of Art Nouveau and its famous Stanislas Place, a UNESCO World Heritage.

We promise you will love bergamotes, macaroons and mirabelles.
