With every new issue of IMMpress Magazine, we are treated to a high level of design sophistication, remarkable breadth and depth of the featured articles, and insightful editorials and perspectives. Since the start, now over two years ago, of this wonderful graduate student-led initiative, I have been continuously thankful to the editorial team for their terrific efforts. In particular, as this marks the second issue with Kieran and Cat as chief-editors, it is wonderful to see how well they have extended the initial guiding vision of IMMpress. They have again put together a wonderful issue, which is focused on host-pathogen interactions with a view from the pathogen side of the equation.
I hope you enjoy this issue and the upcoming ones, and importantly, whether you are an alumnus of the department or a prospective student, I really look forward to hearing from you.
