Eindhoven University of Technology (NL)
The group of Prof. Nico Sommerdijk covers the synthesis and self-assembly of polymers and peptides and specializes in bio-inspired mineralisation studies. For these studies a range of physical characterization techniques are used including advanced electron microscopy. The group is leading in the use of (cryo)-TEM and tomography, extensive image processing and quantification of data.
The role of the Center for Multiscale Electron Microscopy in the MediSURF project will be the analysis of the lipid/peptide assemblies in solution using cryo-TEM and liquid- phase TEM, which will provide feedback for the design of the assemblies.
