Multiscale Methods to Simulate and Predict Membrane Organization: atomistic molecular dynamics to mean field Langevin dynamics
08 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Larry H. Scott, Omar N Sobh
There is considerable interest in the lateral organization of biological membranes. While membrane proteins obviously influence on the localized properties of membranes, the lipids themselves also can self-organize within the bilayer. Computational models can complement the growing body of...

Nanocomposite-Modified Electrodes for Sensing Biological Analytes
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: V. Yegnaraman
Electrochemical sensing of analytes is mostly enabled by transducers based on potentiometry and amperometry. In this, design of sensing (working) electrode is of utmost importance since it only decides the sensitivity and selectivity features of the sensor. Chemical modification of the electrode...
Strategies for Preparation and Manufacture of Polymer-based Nanoparticulate Formulations
21 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen R. Byrn
Nanoparticles hold great promise for drug delivery applications. Several polymer-based formulations containing nanoparticles are in late phase development or on the market. In fact, polymer dispersions provide one of the best methods to prepare nanoparticles of small-molecule organic drugs....
