Olga A. Zhytniakivska (Ryzhova)
PhD, Senior Research Fellow, Associate Professor



The title of my PhD thesis is "Interactions between new fluorescent dyes and model membranes". My research is concerned with elucidating the nature of interactions between the newly synthesized dyes (benzanthrone derivatives synthesized in Riga Technical University) and lipid bilayer, a major structural element of cellular membranes. More specifically, my goals are: investigation of the dyes adsorption onto lipid bilayer, fluorescent probe effect on physicochemical properties of lipid bilayer and spatial organization of the dye-lipid complexes.
