Lectures on Membranes

Cell Membranes as Scientific Fact The fluid-mosaic model of the structure of cell membranes shall shed light on the process of acquiring scientific knowledge and the concept of a 'scientific fact'.
Physical Properties of Cell Membranes Provides information about the structure and function of biological membranes and membrane proteins. It is tailored to a physical view of macromolecules and the many techniques to study them.
Cell Membrane potentials Due to the importance of cell membranes in physiology and cell communication, membrane proteins are preeminent therapeutic targets for the treatment of metabolic, immunological, vascular, endocrinological and neurological disorders and prevention of viral infections.
Membranes as Therapeutic Targets A major function of cell membranes is energy storage and information processing in the brain and muscle. Membranes also power cell motility, photosynthesis, and respiration.
