The current project consists in the development of new strategies/methodologies to interpret SAXS data from model membrane through scattering density distribution of chemical groups. In particular, there will be addressed open problems as lipid oxidation, membrane proteins and pores, as well as polydispersion of multilamellar vesicles. (AU)
