Dynamics Working Group Dynamics of Membranes and their Constituents Member, Internal LINXS Fellow

Tommy Nylander is a Professor at Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and NanoLund, Lund University, Lund. He is also a member of the steering committee for the Swedish Neutron Scattering Society (SNSS). Among the several research projects, which Professor Nylander is interested in, is Model membranes on nanostructured sensing supports. The project aims to study the mechanism of formation and structure of complex lipid bilayers, a lipid composition that mimics biological membranes (i.e. composed of several lipid types) on a variety of substrates including structured surfaces consisting of nanowire forests. This will allow membranes with tailored properties to be developed for applications in key membrane processes, such as antimicrobial peptide activity, protein interactions, and DNA transfection.
