Keynote Presentation: Building synthetic cilia and flagella

Session "Signalling & Motility" | Tuesday, 30 Nov 20:30 - 21:00

Abstract: I shall report on our experimental work to build synthetic cilia or flagella from the bottom up. These Synthonems, as we call them, are being designed to to give synthetic cells, possibly chemotactic, electrotactic, or phototactic  motility,  or to allow synthetic cells or synthetic tissues to directionally transport fluid and with them signaling molecules and cargo. In addition, Synthonems can be used to stir fluid in cellular like containers  where they brake the diffusion barrier. This work would not be possible without Dr. Azam Gholami and Dr. Isabella Guido and our collaborators.
