 Project objective

Biological surfaces are essential for life. Nature employs them as a hub for chemical signalling, active and passive transport of substances, and specialized compartmentation in the building block of life, eukaryotic cell. As such it has been in the main focus of chemist, physicist, and biologist to probe these surfaces with a wide variety of different techniques; from NMR to STORM. This, in fact, is not an easy task since obtaining selective information only from surfaces generally requires to introduce some reporting molecules (chromophore). However, the response of a dye molecule is not always, report on the changes on the biological surface. In this IF proposal, the aim is to enable the probing of biological surfaces, free-floating model membranes, label-free, and non-invasive from the response of interfacial water molecules with second harmonic (SH) response. First, a new high-throughput SH setup will be introduced. The proposed ~3 orders of magnitude enhancement in the SH response will enable to probe at biology relevant (~100 mM) salt concentrations. A big accomplishment for the SH research field. Second, by using this new high throughput setup, two different biological membrane systems and reactions occurring there at will be elucidated, biomimetic lipid droplet organelle, and liposomes, two free-floating membrane model system. Due to its novel aspects, a significant impact is expected from the deliverables of this proposal not only for the scientific field, but also possible intersectoral collaboration prospects as well as opening opportunities for the researcher to achieve a permanent position.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "H2O-SURFACEPROBE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
