Nanoparticle technology is gaining traction in many different industries, particularly in imaging and the medical industries, and thus it becomes increasing important to understand how particles will affect the body. This is why we want to look at the way nanoparticles interact with lipid membranes, since lipids play vital roles in biological processes such as stabilizing the distal airways in our lungs in low volume situations. Knowing how nanoparticles will interact with these lipids can give us insights into the potentials cytotoxicity of the particles, and how other agents, such as viruses act near/on a lipid membrane. In thisthesis, we look at Nanocapsules, to determine the way they dock and aggregate on a lipid membrane.
