Dr. Mu-Ping Nieh from the University of Connecticut visited the Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences on June 1. During his visit, he delivered a lecture entitled Properties of Self-Assembled Discoidal Bicelles and Their Potential Applications in Bionanotechnology.

Dr. Nieh’s research mainly focuses on the studies of liposomes and their self-assembled structure. In his report, Dr. Nieh introduced his group’s wok on the development of stable, self-assembled uniform nano-size unilamellar vesicles/liposomes (ULVs) (20 nm < diameter < 50 nm) from phospholipid mixtures. The spontaneous formation needs no extrusion, enabling the mass production of ULVs. These ULVs have demonstrated the capabilities to incorporate peptides, encapsulate water-soluble molecules as well as thermally controlled-release entrapped contents.
