18 January - 15 February 2016

The objective of the MAPEX research stay was the characterization of the structural integrity and surface interactions of submicron colloidosomes in aqueous and biological media. Differential centrifugal sedimentation (DCS), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and tranmission electron microscopy (TEM) was performed for the analysis. It was possible to gain new insights about the stability and interactions of colloidosomes in plasma, and the outcomes will allow an improved synthesis of colloidosomes for biological applications.
