Description

Title: Molecular MembraneBiophysics and the Origin of Life

Speaker: Dr. Maikel Rheinstadter

Institute: McMaster University

Location: ABB-102

Description:

Ourlab is running a research program in membrane biophysics. We study nanoscalediffusion within and across membranes, the effects of small molecules onmembrane properties, the interaction with common drugs, such as aspirin,ibuprofen and cortisone, and their side effects. We detect and characterizemembrane rafts and peptide interactions in Alzheimer’s disease, and theformation of RNA under prebiotic conditions. I will talk about nano-medicine,our new human red blood cell sensor, and the new Origin of Life Laboratory.
