This chapter briefly reviews background on the use of lipid bilayer vesicles (LBVs) as cell‐membrane models and details the surface‐immobilization strategies of such vesicles. It then proceeds to describe recent measurements of supported vesicles, with a study of membrane permeability, and studies of the interaction of membrane permeabilizing proteins with such solid‐supported LBVs.
