Overview

Created in 1966 under the supervision of CNRS, the Centre de Recherches sur les Macromolécules Végétales (CERMAV) is a fundamental research center devoted to Glycosciences, with strong and multidisciplinary expertise that spans from chemistry, physical-chemistry, biology to material sciences. It covers all the areas related to carbohydrates, their in vivo and in vitro synthesis, their characterization, and their functions and applications. Specifically, the main research area of CERMAV is devoted to the studies of saccharidic molecules: sugars, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, glycoproteins and glycomaterials.
