In the last decade we’ve seen a huge expansion in both our understanding and targeting of the immune system. Of particularly significance has been our growth in understanding how the immune system interacts with nervous system, with landmark discoveries paving the last 5 years, and a number high-profile clinical trials investigating novel immunotherapeutic drugs to combat neurodegenerative disease.

With the field of neuroimmunology expanding year on year, we wanted to take a deeper look at some of the recent milestones in this area and explore where the field could go next. Over this 2-month Spotlight, we’ll bring together neuroimmunology news, articles from our partnered journals as well as MEDLINE-indexed journal Immunotherapy, plus exclusive interviews and opinions from leaders in the field. We’ll look at the history of neuroimmunology, explore new uses for the immune system in targeting nervous system cancers, multiple sclerosis and neurodegenerative disease, and look ahead at the future of this ever-expanding field.

Below you can find all the content associated with this Spotlight – we’ll be adding to it frequently, so be sure to keep checking back. You can also follow the latest Spotlight content by searching #NCneuroimmunology on Twitter and following us at @neuro_central.
