Title: Two faces of phase separated lipid membranes 

Abstract:
Lipid bilayers are ubiquitously found in biological systems as the primary structural component of membranes, and membranes composed of mixtures of lipids can phase separate into coexisting liquid phases. The domains in each leaflet are coupled, so that domains in each leaflet are colocalized. We discuss our recent measurement of the strength of this coupling using microfluidics and fluorescence microscopy.
