Centre de recherches sur les macromolécules végétales

The CERMAV, a CNRS research unit (UPR 5301) celebrates its 55th anniversary in 2021. During more than half a century, five directors have succeeded each other and have been able to develop the axes of this research unit. The themes historically focused on cellulose and lignin, then on plant polysaccharides of economic importance (cellulose and starch) have diversified and now cover different areas of glycosciences, whether towards the synthesis or biosynthesis of biologically active oligosaccharides, the uses of biomass, nanocomposite materials or glycopolymers
