Probing Structure and Dynamics of Bio-Interfaces with Neutron Scattering.

Neutrons due to their penetrability, non-perturbative nature,
isotopic and low-Z elements sensitivity are frequently utilized to
study bio-relevant systems including biological interfaces.
The presentation will demonstrate how the strength of neutron
scattering can be applied to understand two very different
systems: (a) simple engineered polymer-supported lipid bilayers
at solid-liquid interfaces and (b) highly complex arrangement of
living cells adhesion and their response to external shear stress
mimicking blood flow.
