This focus issue on membrane biophysics presents a collection of papers illustrating new developments in modern biophysical research on cell membranes. The work described here addresses questions from a broad range of areas, including cell adhesion, membrane trafficking and activation of cells of the immune system. It also presents recent views on membrane mechanics, the effect of electric fields, as well as on the interplay of mechanics and chemistry and organization at many different scales.
