As an aged person myself (!), I was excited to read this new issue of IMMpress (Volume 6!) dedicated to the ins and outs, the goods and (mostly!) bads of aging.
Through the various articles, the authors explore the psychological, physical and societal impacts of aging and include an interesting article on the effects of aging on the host and also on biomaterials used in implants. Also noteworthy is the article on the “10,000 PhDs” project from the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto, which aimed to report the employment outcomes of over 10,000 PhDs who graduated between 2000 and 2015. It’s interesting to see where our Immunology alumni have landed.
Finally, included in this issue is a “bench-marking” of IMMpress for 2017. The increasing number of feature articles contributed by our students speaks to their extraordinary engagement and awareness of societal issues. Bravo! Congratulations to the whole IMMpress team, and in particular, to our editors, Sintia and Angela.
