Professor Gary Wnek to speak at Copenhagen workshop on the Physics of Excitatory Membranes
Gary Wnek, the Joseph F. Toot Jr. Professor of Engineering in the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, will speak at the first workshop on the Physics of Excitatory Membranes, held Aug. 29-31 at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen.
The workshop will cover electromechanical behavior and flexoelectricity of biomembranes, channels in membranes, anesthesia, fluctuations, propagation phenomena in excitatory membranes, cells and neurons, and related phenomena. The purpose is to bring together scientists who investigate new and alternative ways of thinking about the physics of biological membrane and cell function.
Wnek will discuss the multiple roles of macromolecules in excitable cells.
