I am proud to introduce my edition of Horizons, the Vasant Valley Science Magazine of 2017. Over the many issues, My team of co-editors and I have covered many recent developments, raised awareness on ground-breaking work and also created educational content for the readership. For this issue, I wished to draw the readership's attention towards the vast nature of interdisciplinary collaboration that exists in science. Such collaboration is rarely constricted to only one discipline and can stretch across multiple fields of study. These collaborations lead to a new phenomenon, that is, the study of the same things with different perspectives, different methodologies and processes. More often than not, these collaborations also set up new fields of science, widening the perspectives of human knowledge as a whole. I hence wish to dedicate this issue to the spirit of collaboration, as such collaboration can lead to new and exciting developments.
