Lipids can self-assemble into membranes and peptides can self-fold into
structures. These hard-to-12redict emergent phenomena roducebiologically useful materials such as ceil membranes an dfunctional protein
com21exes. In our group we engineer systems to direct self-assembly and self-lolding towaros useful goals. In this seminar I will introduce a means for directeo self-assembly oI non-equilibrium lipid membrane gradients, and highlight a few applications. I will also introduce a macro-scale
self-assembly platform that could help us understand folding pathways, and potentially produce self-weaving, reactive materials.
