The conference ‘Molecular Modelling – 2010: Advances in Biomolecular and Materials Modelling’ (MM2010) was organised by the Association of Molecular Modellers of Australasia and held at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences from the 28th November to 1st December, 2010. This meeting focused on the latest developments in molecular modelling in both the life sciences and materials sciences, particularly in the areas of drug development, nanotechnology, biophysical modelling and methods and algorithms. Contributions from participants at MM2010 make up the Research Front on Molecular Modelling in this issue of AJC.
