Clinical and Vaccine Immunology (CVI) will merge with the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) open-access journal mSphere in January 2018. We commemorate this transition by exploring the history of CVI and that of its predecessor, Clinical and Diagnostic Laboratory Immunology (CDLI), and by acknowledging their contributors. Research on vaccines, clinical immunology, and clinical diagnostic immunology published through mSphere will be available without restrictions to an ever-larger audience, which will expedite progress in the field. ASM remains committed to supporting its members and the research community by facilitating the dissemination of scientific knowledge in these important areas.
