Project: Autopropulsion of liposomes in living systems, and mimicking with abiotic systems

01-AUG-05 – 31-JUL-08

The goals of the proposed project are, on one hand, to obtain a better understanding of how force is produced in living systems by breaking down cell motility into its essential components, and, on the other hand, to invent analogous but purely chemical systems that reproduce the phenomenon of force production by polymer assembly.
