Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes

Edited by

  • Ales Iglic, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes, Volume 11, includes invited chapters on a broad range of topics, covering both of the main arrangements of the reconstituted system, namely planar lipid bilayers and spherical liposomes. The invited authors present the latest results of their own research groups in this exciting multidisciplinary field. This volume addresses the broader goal with both systems, planar lipid bilayers and spherical liposomes, which is the further development of this interdisciplinary field worldwide.
