Lipid and surfactant membranes are important building blocks for many applications of soft matter physics, and play an essential role for biological systems. A detailed understanding of protein, nanoparticle, and virus interactions with membranes is important for a variety of processes – ranging from material transport within the cell and cellular uptake to viral infection and nanotoxicity. The relevant mechanisms can only be understood by considering simultaneously the physicochemical properties of membrane, nanoparticles, and proteins. Therefore, this workshop intends to bring together researchers who are interested in particles and proteins, as well as those interested in lipid membranes and surfactants.
Deadline for registration and for poster abstracts: 30 September 2014.
