The 10th CROSSroads Workshop
Frontier Research on Bio-membranes and Colloids
18-19 December 2013
Room B101, Ibaraki Quantum Beam Research Center, Tokai, Japan
Amphipathic molecules such as lipids and surfactants can aggregate in a variety of structural forms – (micelles, vesicles etc.) depending on the relative environmental conditions. Structural and dynamic information about these systems can lead to an understanding of their inherent functions and unique properties.
In this workshop, recent experimental and computational results will be discussed with a focus on: (i) nano-structures formed by amphipathic molecules and their dynamics over a wide range of length and timescales and, (ii) the interaction between water and amphipathic molecules. In addition, the merits of neutron scattering at the MLF will be explored and a tour of the facility will be included in the workshop program.
Date: 18-19 December 2013Venue: Ibaraki Quantum Beam Research Center, Rm B101
