10) Interaction of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) with model bacterial cell membranes

Supervisor: Włodzimierz Kutner

Dusan Mrdenovic was born in Serbia, where he graduated from all levels of education. In 2016, he received MSc degree in Chemical Engineering from Technical faculty in Bor, University of Belgrade. In 2017, he became PhD student at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Science and member of the group of molecular films research, led by prof. Wlodzimierz Kutner. He is working on determining the mechanism of interaction between amyloid β peptide and biological membrane models, which is essential step for understanding the pathophysiology and developing the treatment for neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. He will study the peptide-membrane interaction via AFM, STM, PM-IRRAS and electrochemical techniques. He is going for secondments at University of Guelph in Canada, where he will continue his work under supervision of prof. Jacek Lipkowski.
