Rebekka Wild, team leader in the "Structure and activity of glycosaminoglycans" group at IBS, has been awarded the Impulscience® grant by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation for her work wich aims to better understand the biosynthesis of these long sugar chains.

Understanding better the biosynthesis of these chains will help to develop drugs that modify the structure of these long sugar chains and thus protect cells against viral infections or cancer ( details).
