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

Experimental investigation of unilamellar vesicles and their dynamics
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

ESR8-S: Kinetics of nanoscale structural changes occurring in small unilamellar vesicles

Experimental investigation of unilamellar vesicles using microscopy techniques
Monika Kluzek
Experimental project on small unilamellar lipid vesicles (SUV) interacting with nanoparticles, with special emphasis on the use of transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM). This project will consist in elaborating, characterizing and studying in detail decorated liposomes, using state of the art techniques such as EM tomography and time […]
