Summary: This Focus Issue of Science’s STKE complements a Special Issue of Science, which features a collection of Perspectives that describe obstacles to attaining a more complete understanding of the immune system. Taking stock of where the field now stands, the authors identify areas that warrant further investigation and speculate on the likely clinical benefits of achieving a deeper understanding of immune function. Articles in Science’s STKE highlight molecular challenges that immunologists have overcome, new questions that have arisen from their studies, and cutting-edge techniques that will enable immunologists to tackle these problems.
