    Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) – the etiologic agent of AIDS – is one of the most intensively studied disease organism in history. Since its first identification in the early 1980s, HIV has transformed into a pandemic, globally infecting more 36 million people and annually contributing to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of patients – particularly in low income countries.

    The nervous and immune systems communicate and reciprocally influence their functional responses. Nature ImmunologyandNature Neurosciencepresent a joint focus entailing a series of specially commissioned review articles that discuss how the nervous system and immune cells interact during development, homeostasis and in pathogenic disease states.

    Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are a family of lymphoid effector cells with important roles in immunological defense and pathology. Nature Immunology presents a series of specially commissioned articles that discuss the evolution, development, functional diversity and immunotherapeutic potential of ILCs. In collaboration with Nucleus Medical Media, Nature Immunology has also produced an animation that shows the complexity of ILC biology in the gut at steady state and during disease.
