Brief presentation of the institution

Chouaib Doukkali University from El Jadida is one of four major Moroccan universities. It has international academic and industrial partnerships in the areas of health, environment, agriculture, alternative energies, etc. It was also partner of Cost action MP0702 (2008-2012). The laboratory of Chemical Physics consists of two teams: Chemoinformatic and Spectroscopy team and Thermochemistry, Surface and Catalysis team. The former, includes, in addition to student researchers, 4 professors, two of them have benefited from exceptional promotion. It has extensive experience in molecular modeling of complex chemical systems (hydrocarbons, phosphate materials..) and spectroscopy (Raman, IR, UV-visible, RMN..). Specifically, our experience in modeling techniques of flexibility and dynamic of hydrocarbons (molecular mechanics and dynamics, post HF and DFT computations) very useful in the study of derived synthetic membranes as well as the health field research priority of Moroccan Higher Education and Research Ministry motivated us to take an interest in the biological membranes.

Main Electroporation related topics

After being formally a member of Cost action TD1104 of BMBS domain in January 2013, we had with our Cost partners (Equipe de Chimie et Biochimie Théoriques, CNRS, Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France) the ambition to investigate the lipid bilayers response to intense elecric fields using theoretical approaches at molecular level. Indeed, recent advances consider the lipid bilayers oxidation as a result of the application of the electric field at very high amplitude causing their destabilization even after switching off the electric field. We had planned to study these phenomena using classical and QM approaches. Some preliminary results have been obtained during a first STSM in June 2013.
