Multivalent Scaffolds in Glycosciences

The issue n°42 of Chemical Society Reviews devoted to the theme of “Multivalent Scaffolds in Glycosciences” assembles 18 contributions that provide a timely description of the several families of molecular scaffolds that all contribute to help deciphering the complexity of multivalent interactions which are play in many protein-carbohydrate interactions. Beside contributing to our understanding of the glycocode through multivalency, numerous applications of multivalent glyco-architectures have emerged. They encompass therapeutic opportunities (antimicrobial strategies, vaccines, targeted drug delivery,…) to diagnostic applications and cell and tissue imaging.
