ssNMR (solid-state NMR) spectroscopy provides increasing possibilities to study the structural and dynamic aspects of biological membranes. Here, we review recent ssNMR experiments that are based on MAS (magic angle spinning) and that provide insight into the structure and dynamics of membrane systems at the atomic level. Such methods can be used to study membrane architecture, domain formation or molecular complexation in a way that is highly complementary to other biophysical methods such as imaging or calorimetry.
