We are now starting Volume IV of IMMpress Magazine, and I remain awestruck (best synonym for “impressed” that I saw fitting) by the high level of design sophistication, remarkable breadth and depth of the featured articles, and insightful editorials and perspectives. In this issue, the IMMpress team delights us with another stimulating and paradigm-shifting issue.

This time around IMMpress Magazine turns its attention to examining the paradigms in science and medicine, and includes articles on the nature of the TCR and the use of video games to improve learning outcomes in science education. There is also an insightful alumni interview with Thiru Selvanantham that reflects upon the challenges and rewards faced when working at a start-up company. Lastly, we have a great recount of the events from the recent annual meeting of the Canadian Society for Immunology.

As IMMpress starts its 4th year, I remain extremely pleased with their sustained vision and dedication, and I am thankful to the editorial team for their extraordinary efforts. With this in mind, I am struck by the fact that our very own graduate students have created their own paradigm shift with the establishment of this publication. It has changed how the Department of Immunology’s graduate students engage with each other and the rest of the world. This issue also marks the last turn for Catherine Schrankel as co-Chief Editor, during which Cat provided remarkable artistic virtuosity and scientific depth to many IMMpress articles. I am pleased to welcome Angela Zhou, a long-term contributor, who will be serving as co-Chief Editor with Kieran Manion, who thankfully remains at the helm to continue guiding this extraordinary publication.

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.
