The Membrane biophysics Subgroup promotes the exchange of ideas and information pertaining to the study of biological membranes. Membrane biophysics Subgroup members pursue research in a variety of areas including the structure, function and regulation of channels and transporters, lig-and-receptor interactions, signal transduction mechanisms, protein trafficking and secretory mechanisms. As opposed to membrane biology, membrane biophysics focuses on quantitative information and modeling of various membrane phenomena, such as lipid raft formation, rates of lipid and cholesterol flip-flop, protein-lipid coupling, and the effect of bending and elasticity functions of membranes on inter-cell connections.
