Dr. Imberty is Research Director at the Centre de Recherches sur les Macromolécules Végétales (CERMAV), affiliated
to the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) based at Grenoble, France.
Her research interests are in the field of structural glycobiology, with main interest on biologically active oligosaccharides and their interaction with lectins and glycosyltransferases. She solved several crystal structures of oligosaccharides and of lectin/carbohydrate complexes. Her main interest is the characterization of the molecular basis of recognition between lectins from pathogens and human glycoconjugates and design of glycocompounds with anti-infectious properties.
Her present research projects are centered on lectins from opportunistic bacteria that are involved in the first steps of infection. Structural characterization of these lectins and of their interaction with human glycoconjugates is opening the route for the design of glycocompounds with anti-bacterial activities.Publications
