Physics of Biological Membranes – Overview


About the lecture

Time and place

Dienstags, 16 - 18 Uhr, Vorlesung, (Kl. Physikalischer Hörsaal N020)
Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1

Erster Vorlesungstermin: 15.10.2019
Letzter Vorlesungstermin: 04.02.2019

The 2 hours lecture course including exercises accounts for 3 ECTS credit points.

The program covers the physics of biological membranes: membrane elasticity, molecular dynamics of lipids, thermodynamics of lipid mixtures and electrostatics of membranes. The lecture will focus on the relevance of biophysical mechanisms in living cells. Students should be part of the physics masters programm. Basic knowledge in undergraduate physics, in particular statistical physics is required.
