A battery of biophysical, structural and molecular biology methods and techniques are being applied to the study of biomembranes, accumulated through funding from a range of national and international sources. In particular, a new approach to membrane studies has been developed, namely the exploitation of solid state NMR to resolve both dynamics and structural details of membrane proteins (including drug targets) and lipids. More recently, single molecule methods have been used for potential bionanotechnological application, with a focus on the major class of neuoreceptors, G-protein coupled receptors, GPCRs.
