Michael Schick obtained his PhD in physics at Stanford University under Felix Bloch. After a post-doctoral position with Paul Zilsel at Case Western Reserve University, he joined the faculty of the University of Washington in 1969.

Michael Schick obtained his PhD in physics at Stanford University under Felix Bloch. His interests have included phase transitions in lower dimensional systems, wetting phenomena, microemulsions, the phase behavior of block copolymers and of lipids, and the fusion of biological membranes.

Part I: Red Blood Cell Shapes. Part II: Molecular Simulations of Membranes. Michael Schick obtained his P. in Physics at Stanford University. Gerhard Gompper received his P. in Physics at the niversity of Munich, Germany. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA, he returned to Munich for his habilitation. From 1994 to 1999, he held a staff scientist position at the for Colloid- and Interface Science in Berlin-Teltow. After a post-doctoral position at Case Western Reserve University, he joined the faculty of the University of Washington in 1969.

The fourth volume in this series focuses on biological membrane science, in particular its biophysics. Clearly divided into two parts, the first covers red blood cell shapes, while the second part on molecular simulation provides in-depth information on how to make significant progress with membrane characterization by means of models, and how to refine them by comparing them to experiments. The result is a highly relevant monograph for both an understanding of the biophysical concepts as well as of novel applications

New knowledge arising from this work will be used to optimize nanoparticle bridging adhesion between soft interfaces and will be applied to design nanoparticle-based adhesives of biological tissue.

Introduction BioSoft Biophysics & Soft Matter Macromolecules consisting of hundreds to thousands of atoms have many emergent properties, which are not present in small molecules. Prominent examples are linear polymers, which are constructed from a single or a few kinds of building blocks.
