Back Cover: The field of polymer-protein conjugation has greatly evolved since the first covalent attachment of poly(ethylene glycol) chains to a protein in order to stabilize miomacromolecules. Since then, these hybrid materials have become central to a surfeit of applications, particularly in biomedicine. The synthetic polymer endows the hybrid with unique properties, while retaining the activity of the biological part. Further details can be found in the article by D. E. Borchmann, T. P. Carberry, and M. Weck* on page 27.
