    NRI is 20! To celebrate this milestone, we present 20 Journal Club articles that pay tribute to some of the major immunological breakthroughs that have occurred since the journal was launched in October 2001. We also announce the launch of a new series of Perspective articles that consider the ‘past, present and future’ use of immunotherapies in different disease settings.

  • Neuroimmune Series

    The field of neuroimmunology has blossomed in recent years. This can be attributed to sophisticated technological advances as well as to the burgeoning collaboration of neuroscientists and immunologists. Articles in this Series reflect the fruits of these collaborative efforts and review our current understanding of the intricate crosstalk that takes place between the immune and nervous systems.

  • Picture of peer review

    In this Collection, we bring you articles that highlight the latest research and insight into the immunology of SARS-CoV-2 and the associated disease COVID-19. They cover our emerging understanding of the immune response to this new coronavirus, prospects for vaccine development, immunopathology of COVID-19 and how it might be treated with immunomodulatory drugs.

  • In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-vaccine activism in the USA accelerated, amplified and formed an alliance with political groups and even extremists. An organized, well-funded and empowered anti-science movement now threatens to spill over and threaten all childhood immunizations in the USA and globally.

  • Established models of behavioural science can help to explain the suboptimal COVID-19 vaccine uptake even in countries with a plentiful supply, showing that increasing vaccination is not just about increasing knowledge and motivation, but also about increasing the opportunity for vaccination.

  • A preprint by Cheng et al. describes how differential expression of the X-chromosome-encoded epigenetic regulator UTX contributes to sex-based differences in natural killer cell frequency and function.
