9th workshop "Nano and Micro-Environments for Cell Biology "

Tuesday September 8, 2015, Tuesday September 8, 2015Saint-Martin-d’Hères

This 9th NaMiSCeB Workshop brings together students and researchers from Grenoble and beyond working at the interface between physics, engineering, chemistry and biology.
It is organized to conclude Ralf RICHTER’s Chair of Excellence project. Initiated in 2011, “GAG2D” was a remarkably collaborative project which relied on the interdisciplinary expertise of four Grenoble-based laboratories : DCM (which hosts the Chair of Excellence), IBS, LMGP and INAC/SPrAM. Altogether, Ralf RICHTER and his collaborators worked at understanding the role of the extracellular matrix polysaccharides - known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) - in the sequestration and presentation of chemokines, the molecules used by cells to communicate between each other.

Organizers : Ralf RICHTER (Chaire d’Excellence), Hugues LORTAT-JACOB (IBS), Roberto Calemczuk (INAC/SPrAM), Catherine PICART (LMGP, Grenoble-INP), Pierre LABBÉ (DCM), Liliane GUERENTE (DCM, UJF).
