Exactly one year ago, we published our first articles and began our journey to produce engaging content to highlight the broad field of immunology research. Over the past year, we (the Editorial Board) have faced PhD defenses, job changes, motherhood, and more—all in addition to volunteering our time and energy to manage this site. We certainly couldn’t do this without the hard work of our volunteer Contributors and their commitment to quality as they research and write their posts. Thank you for working with us!
