The webinar contains cellular membranes and biomembrane models, the need for technique complementarity, examples for mammalian and molecular interactions at such membranes, examples for bacterial models, the inclusion of membrane proteins, and exploring membrane curvature.
Presenter: Prof. Marité Cárdenas
Marité Cárdenas is a Professor in Biomedical Science at Malmö University, currently in a Sabbatical year at the School of Biological Sciences, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). She is an expert on various physical-chemical aspects of self-assembly in biological systems. Cárdenas's expertise centers on lipid-protein/DNA interactions and the characterization of their structures in solution and at interfaces. Examples include the structure of Biomembranes including membrane proteins, mechanism of action of antimicrobial peptides, structural effects on nanoparticles upon interaction with serum proteins, lipoprotein structure, and their capacity to exchange fats.
