ESR7-S: Optical microscopy and microrheology of giant unilamellar vesicles interacting with nano-objects

Experimental investigation of unilamellar vesicles and their dynamics

Description

Experimental project on the morphological and mechanical changes in lipid vesicles caused by exposure to the nano-objects, by means of epi- and confocal fluorescence studies.

Emphasis will be put on understanding the influence of lipid composition, oxidation and investigating the membrane structure changes using ratiometric fluorescent probes.

Starting date

December 2014
