This issue contains a group of papers presented at the Fall 1994 Materials Research Society meeting in the Symposium on Biomolecular and Biomimetic Materials. For the last seven years the MRS has organised a symposium, which deals with the biology/materials interface, during the Boston meeting. This annual event is probably the best regular survey of the various fields which can be grouped under the "Biomimetic" heading. The shift in emphasis each year also means that different areas come under the spotlight. In this last meeting there were particular emphases on membranes and interfaces and on applications of biological polymers. The next meeting will take place from November 27th-December 1st in Boston. Symposium U is called "Materials Inspired by Biology" and the program can be seen via the network at http: / /www.mrs.org. Symposium V at the 1996 spring meeting also has a biomimetic component.
