Partner Event: Symposium - Lipid self-assembly - structure, function and applications

Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Lund University and LINXS (Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Studies) have the pleasure to invite you to this mini-symposium, entitled ”Lipid self-assembly - structure, function and applications”. The focus on the presentations will be on self-assembly structure of biological relevance as revealed neutron and x-ray scattering techniques. Coffee and cake will be served during the symposium.
