Symposium on the Mechanics of Biomembranes, 2009 ASCE-ASME-SES Conference on Mechanics and Materials, June 24-27, Blacksburg

Symposium on the

Mechanics of Biomembranes

at the

2009 Joint ASCE-ASME-SES Conference on Mechanics and Materials, June 24-27, Blacksburg, VA

 

 

Recent advances in computational and analytical tools and experimental techniques have considerably advanced our understanding of various membrane functions and processes.  The symposium focuses on the computational and analytical modeling and experimental investigations of biomembranes, and thus calls for advanced modeling tools and experimental techniques for the study of the biomechanics and biophysics of lipid bilayer membranes and vesicles. 

The symposium provides a forum for discussions and interactions between modelers and experimentalists on the mechanics of biomembranes. Some of the topics that will be discussed include but are not limited to:

 

Atomistic modeling of lipid bilayers

Protein-lipids interaction

Coarse-grained models of biomembranes

Continuum model of biomembranes

Experimental techniques in biomembrane mechanics

Vesicle fusion

Nanoparticle endocytosis

Cell membrane modeling

Membrane abnormalities associated with cell disorders

 

Organizers:

George Lykotrafitis (University of Connecticut)

Ju Li (University of Pennsylvania)

Sulin Zhang (Pennsylvania State University)

Greg Huber (University of Connecticut)

Ming Dao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
