It was about eight years ago, January 2013, that the very first issue of IMMpress Magazine was published. The theme was “Evolution of the Immune System”, and since their momentous start, editorial teams of IMMpress, ever changing, evolving one might say, have continued to produce thoughtful and engaging issues. The current issue’s theme is on the use of animals in research, biomimicry, and our co-evolution. Several important topics are covered relating to our field’s dependency on different animal models, with an appreciation for the breath of utility and impact derived from these applications.

I would like to congratulate the outstanding IMMpress editorial and production team and contributors for putting together another brilliant and impactful issue. Also, a warm welcome to Louis Ngai, who is joining Pailin Chiaranunt as co-editor-in-chief of this extraordinary graduate student-led publication.

I am certain that we are all looking forward to the end of 2020 and share a mutual earnest hope for what can only be a better new year in 2021. I extend my best wishes to all for a pandemic-ending vaccine-filled new year, filled with scientific, educational, and personal achievements.

I hope you enjoy this issue, and importantly whether you are an alumnus of the department, or a prospective student, I really look forward to hearing from you.
