Minisymposium Title: Mechanics, Electro- and Hydro- dynamics of Drops and Vesicles

Minisymposium Description: Drops and vesicles (self-enclosing unilamellar lipid bilayer) are ubiquitous in material sciences as their mechanics and dynamics are relevant to a wide range of engineering applications. Vesicles are used as biomimetic model membranes to shed light on how cell membranes uptake nano-particles and remodel under forces. The electro-hydrodynamics of particles on the drop surface is investigated to understand how charged macromolecules transport on membranes. This minisymposium brings together experts in different aspects of this field to discuss new discoveries and novel mathematics for modeling the complex mechanics and dynamics of drops and vesicles as they interact with particles, charges and fluid in the context of biological soft materials.
