Secondment to the University of Ljubljana


Jeel Raval, NaMeS Ph.D. student, participated in the secondments at the University of Ljubljana. Jeel's visit to Profesor Iglic’s lab has been very fruitful as the secondment institute's research group has similar work interests.  Under this collaboration, Jeel has advanced on her work on the study of shape deformations of single component vesicle membranes induced by their adhesion to a rigid surface. Furthermore, she started to study a more complex vesicle system, which was composed of many components. This study aimed to understand the shape change's effect due to adhesion on the lateral distribution of these components within the membrane surface. Her work on a single component was the basis for the study of this complex system, which is still ongoing, and it is planned for publication after its completion. Jeel was also simultaneously working on some part of her study on the single component vesicle adhesion and shape change. Jeel Raval has enjoyed and learned from the stimulating discussions with her co-supervisor and colleagues from Profesor. Iglic’s lab. This trip also allowed her to present a talk on her work to a diverse group consisting of both theoreticians and experimentalists who have been working related to different aspects of vesicles and liposomes.
