Anna Laromaine gives a talk at the “Self-Assembly at ICMAB” conference on June 21st
June 21st-22nd is Self-Assembly at ICMAB (SELF2016), the conference on self-assembly within the ICMAB. The topics covered include self-assembly of nanoparticles, nanostructures onto surfaces, and organic molecules, and theory and simulation of self-assembly, among others.
Anna Laromaine will give a talk (Tuesday, June 21st, 12.00) on “Albumin self-assembled on iron oxide nanoparticles’ surfaces”.

(a) Contact between BSA and the nanoparticle (t = 0.07 ns), (b) spreading of the BSA over the nanoparticle (t = 3 ns), and (c) relaxation of the adsorbed BSA protein (t = 9 ns).
