Take exam: Studomat
English level:


All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.

Expected learning outcomes:

1. Capability of applying fractal theory of biological structures to estimate whether the biological system under the investigation is a fractal object or not.
2. Capability of making use of the reported phase diagrams of biomembrane lipid components in the design of the experiments.
3. Capability of recruiting scientists from other scientific disciplines, which can contribute in the analysis of questions, imposed in the specific research.
4. Capability of understanding and following of scientific literature in the field of this very interdisciplinary scientific segment.

Course content:


1. Biomembranes geometry and dynamics: Theory of fractals
2. Biomembranes dynamics: (deterministic chaos
3. Supramolecular structure of eukaryotic cells, Lipids and interactions in the membranes
4. Phase transitions in the biomembrane
5. Liquid crystals
6. Heterogeneity and asymmetry in the organization of building blocks with the membrane Liposoms,
7. Transport through the membrane
8. Molecular dynamics

Practical Exercises:

The student choses one topic or laboratory where to join the scientists in their research at Ruđer Bošković Institute
Molecular oncology and transplantation
Personalized medicine
Electron paramagnetic resonance


At the last meeting in the term students give seminars related to the practical exercises they have chosen.
