Serge Perez


Serge Perez was born in Perigueux, France, and graduated, in crystallography, from the University of Bordeaux, France. He then spent one year at the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Oregon, Eugene, USA and subsequently three years at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Montreal, Canada. He returned to France upon accepting a permanent position as a Junior Scientist of the Centre National de le Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at Centre de Recherches sur les Macromolecules Végétales (CERMAV), Grenoble, and he spent a sabbatical year working for Eastman Kodak in Rochester, USA. Later on, he moved on to Nantes, France, at the Institut de la Recherche Agronomique, where he was awarded a position as Senior Research Scientist to start a research group in Molecular Engineering. In January 1996 he moved back to Grenoble to become Chairman of the CERMAV, and hold this position for 11 years. He left this position to the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility to take up the position of Scientific Director in charge of the Life Sciences, Chemistry and X-ray Imaging programs. After completing his term, he returned to the CERMAV in 2012. Since January 2014 he is a staff member of the Department of Molecular Pharmacochemistry, a joint research unit between CNRS and University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble. His research interests span across the whole area of structural and conformational analysis of oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, glycoconjugates and protein–carbohydrate interactions in solution and in the solid state. This includes interests in computational chemistry and molecular modeling, crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, along with the structure-function and structure-properties relationship. He is the author of more than 250 research articles, review articles and book chapters in this area, which gave rise to about 9000 citations. Beside his broad range interest in the field of structural glycoscience, Serge Perez is involved international and international committees related to the evaluation of scientific research and to the structuring of multilateral collaborative schemes. He is also involved in management duties at the doctoral levels and in the creation of glyco-biotechnology companies. He is also the founder of the internet site :, a recent initiative which addresses aiming at promoting the field of glycoscience throughout the publication of educational e-chapters and the publication of e-news.
