About Kaori Sugihara

Kaori Sugihara is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Chemistry at the University of Geneva. Her lab studies the mechanism of lipid self-assembly and develops applications with the formed lipid nanostructures toward biomedical engineering and electronics. She controls the lipid self-assembly by carefully studying the membrane physics. Formed lipid nanostructures are used for different applications in biomedical engineering and electronics. Her research is in the field of physical chemistry, biophysics, biomaterials, bioelectronics, bio-optics and biomedical engineering.
