Advances in Biomembranes and Lipid Self-Assembly (ABiLSA) provides an excellent platform for renown as well as young biomembrane researchers around the world. ABiLSA’s vision is to embrace lipid-based hot topics ranging from fundamental questions on the role biomembranes for life, all the way to designing novel lipid-self assemblies delivering solutions for consumer products, bioenergy and health. This includes presenting production protocols to methodological and technological developments of lipid nanostructures, their structural, chemical and physical characterization and understanding. Ever since its launch the series has provided a global stage for the community of biomembrane experts having very broad scientific interests in theoretical, experimental and simulation studies. As planar lipid bilayers are widely studied due to their ubiquity in cell life, this series presents investigation on their application in the formulation of biomimetic model membranes, and in the design of artificial dispersion of liposomes. Likewise, ABiLSA discusses how lipids self-assemble into a wide range of non-planar, curved 3D-structures, including micelles of every shape, liquid crystalline mesophases with hexagonal and bicontinuous cubic symmetry and reports on fascinating hierarchical architectures found in life and applied sciences.
