Dulce Papy Garcia (Gly-CRRET, UPEC, Créteil) and Romain Vives (IBS, Grenoble) are glad to invite you to participate to the next INSERM (French national institute for Health Sciences) international workshop on Glycosaminoglycans that will take place in Bordeaux, on the 19-21th of June 2019.

The goal of this workshop is to put an emphasis on the technological developments and breakthroughs that led to progress in the understanding of GAG structure and biological functions, as well as the perspectives of applications in diagnostics and therapy.

The workshop will include 4 main sessions focusing on :

  • GAG Biosynthesis and Metabolism

Confirmed speakers : L. Kjellen (Uppsala Univ., Uppsala, Sweden) – L. Pedersen (South Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill, USA) – A. Malmström (Lund Univ., Lund, Sweden) – R. Vivès (IBS, Grenoble, France) – S. Fournel Gigleux (Nancy Univ., Nancy, France)

  • GAG-protein interactions and physiophatological conditions

Confirmed speakers : H. Lortat-jacob (IBS, Grenoble, France) – A. Vortkamp (Essen Univ., Essen, Germany) – D. Papy-Garcia (Université Paris Est, Créteil, France) – J. van den Born, (Groningen Univ., Groningen, The Netherlands) – P. Nieto (Spanish National Research Council, Sevilla, Spain)

  • Technological and methodological approaches for GAG analysis

Confirmed speakers : T. van Kuppevelt (Radboud Univ, Nijmegen, Pays-bas) – S. Ricard-Blum (Université de Lyon I, Lyon, France) – D. Bonnaffé (ICMMO, Orsay, France) – F. Noborn (Gothenburg Univ., Gothenbur, Sweden)

  • GAGs : from bench to bedside
