This project is a collaborative effort between ARNA laboratory and LCPO aiming at developing bioinspired systems by conjugating responsive lipids and biomimetic polymers. These lipopolymers will be able to anchor in artificial or natural cell membrane and to control its permeation via the application of external stimuli (pH, ions, etc.). Compared to natural proteins, these synthetic transporters will be more robust, but they will also keep the responsiveness and the reversibility of the natural models. This project is funded by the Innovative Research Network “Frontiers of Life” of University of Bordeaux, which gathers experts around bioinspired systems to build artificial cells.
