Polymers and Self- Assembly: From Biology to Nanomaterials

October 25-30, 2015

Windsor Excelsior Hotel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Many proteins assemble into polymers, both naturally (as in actin and tubulin) and pathologically (as in amyloid). The study of the structure and function of these biological polymers has been an important area of research by biophysicists. A large and growing community of chemists, chemical engineers, physicists, and materials scientists have been investigating the self-assembly of peptides for many purposes, from creating new bionanomaterials to forming assemblies for drug delivery. The aim of this meeting is to bring together these multidisciplinary areas to share techniques and innovations, advancing our understanding of these complex systems.
