Rachel Auzély-Velty is full Professor at Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA). She is leading the group “Structure and Modification of Polysaccharides” in CERMAV-CNRS (Grenoble) where she was recruited as a CNRS researcher in 1999 before being promoted to full Professor at UGA in 2005. Her research interests lie in the fields of chemistry and physico-chemistry of polysaccharides and of biomaterials (especially hydrogels). Potential target applications include controlled and targeted drug delivery, cell therapy and tissue engineering. She has published more than 110 papers related to polysaccharide chemistry in international journals, 6 book chapters, and 14 patents. She was a junior fellow of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) (2009-14) and she is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Biomacromolecules (ACS) and Carbohydrate Polymers (Elsevier).
