During sleep, we experience a loss of consciousness coupled with decreased muscle tone and increased sensory thresholds. Yet sleep is not a uniform state. For most mammals, sleep involves alternations between the rapid eye movement (REM) sleep in which we have our most vivid dreams and non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep including deep slow wave sleep.

Angiogenesis, consisting in the formation of blood vessels from preexisting ones, is of crucial importance in pathological situations such as cancer and diabetes and is a therapeutic target for these two diseases. We have developed protein and sugar arrays probed by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) imaging to identify binding partners of proteins, polysaccharides and receptors regulating angiogenesis.
