Brief presentation of the institution

The School of Physics and Astronomy has two groups (Soft Matter Physics, and Molecular and Nanoscale Physics) in which the physics of lipid bilayer membranes are studied, both experimentally and theoretically. Electroporation is studied  theoretically in terms of how mechanical stresses and electriacl stressed interact with the elasticity of the lipid bilayer. This work accompanies a broad range of computational and theoretical studies of lipid bilayers and experimental work in supported bilayers and bilayers for biomedical applications. 

Main Electroporation related topics

The main topics of interest related to electroportation include pore formation, the role of lipid composition, dynamics of, within, and around lipid membranes, and the role of bilayer asymmetry. 

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

-- computer simulation/analytic theory

- Experimental efforts include a full suite of AFM equipment and surface analysis. 

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

- Microbubbles

- Supported lipid bilayers
