Lecture: Biomembrane crystallization

6th February 2019, 14:00 to 15:00, Lecture Theatre Ph30, Physics Department, Rochester Building, Dr Zakaria Almsherqi (National University of Singapore)

This talk will focus on membrane organizations resembling lipidic bicontinuous phases.


Zakaria A. Almsherqi is lecturer and research scientist in the department of Physiology, School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). His research interest is primarily related to biomembranes and their clinical applications. His main research work investigates biomembranes structure, function and their biomolecular organization. Specifically, he envisions a systemic description of structure and function of highly organized membrane structures known as cubic membranes. Cubic membranes represent the utmost well-organized membrane structures in nature and they attract significant attention because of their unique feature of 3 dimensions (3D) periodicity in electron micrograph imaging.
