PhD Summer School – Nanotools at Biomembranes

phd summer school

After this course the students will acquire both theoretical and experimental knowledge in a set of state-of-the-art surface sensitive techniques that enable following biomolecular interactions at model cellular membranes.

This course is composed of 3 moments:

1. Online lectures to provide the theoretical background available from August the 5th, 2019.

2. One week experimental work in our modern research labs (26-30 August 2019).

3. Online report submission by September the 13th 2019.

Intended Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course the student should be able to:

1. Describe a set of models for biomembranes.

2. Describe the principles of a set of nanotools with focus on AFM, QCM-D, ellipsometry and Neutron Reflection.

3. Relate biomembrane models to a given experimental technique.

4. Apply a set of nanotools and nanomodels to unravel biomolecular interactions at membranes.

5. Reflect on the choices made and the results obtained.


Pass/Non-pass. To pass the course students must take part of the video lectures, pass the online quiz, participate on the lab activities and pass the final report.
