    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.

    This collection of primary research articles, reviews and protocols focuses on an emerging topic of mechanobiology, highlighting the broad involvement of mechanical forces in different biological contexts, their roles in development, physiology and disease, and how these forces are sensed and transduced to produce biologically-relevant responses. The collection also showcases new technical approaches to modulate mechanobiology, which in the future could be used to control cell fate and behaviour for therapeutic benefits.

    In this Focus issue, five Review articles discuss how factors such as maternal nutrition, microbial colonization, infection and pregnancy-associated microchimerism shape the developing immune system, influencing its response to pathogens and vaccines, the risk of allergic and immune-mediated diseases, and future reproductive success.

    It is 50 years since Max Cooper and Robert Good published their landmark study that led to the birth of the B cell field. Immunologists now appreciate that B cells are not only important for the generation of antibodies, but regulate immune responses through a diverse range of mechanisms. To celebrate the golden anniversary of the B cell, Nature Reviews Immunology has invited some of the world's leading experts on B cell biology to discuss their highlights from past and present research in the field.

    The homeostatic immune responses that operate in steady-state conditions are required to maintain the stability of diverse physiological systems and processes, ranging from host–commensal relationships in the gut to the fibrotic cascade involved in wound healing. Furthermore, regulatory T cells and phagocytic cells are required to maintain homeostasis of all tissues. Failure of these homeostatic mechanisms can precipitate disease in the absence of infection.
