The aims of this Editorial are to review the evolution of research at the interface of polymer science and biology and to present a forward-looking view of this field. We do this by highlighting some areas of research that have been prominently featured in Biomacromolecules over the past years and by presenting some emerging topics that we consider of great relevance and interest to the polymer science community and the readership of Biomacromolecules. This Editorial is partly based on a symposium entitled “Polymers at the Interface with Biology” and an associated “round-table” discussion that took place during the 2017 American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall Meeting in Washington, DC. The participants of this discussion included the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors of Biomacromolecules as well as a group of 13 invited experts.
