July 2013:  Kent State Physics Professor Elizabeth Mann and her PhD advisee Pritam Mandal collaborate with researchers at the University of Washington, Seattle, on research into lipid membranes of biological importance.  Their latest findings have been published this month in the prestigious Biophysical Journal.  

In recognition of the high scientific impact of this multidisciplinary research, the journal editors have featured a microscopic image from this research on the front cover of the current issue (reproduced on the right).   This composite false color photo shows a giant unilamellar vesicle.  Those interested in reading the original publication in the journal can find the article at the Biophysical Journal website.
