REGULATION OF TISSUE-RESIDENT MEMORY T CELL DEVELOPMENT
Grant number: 1083685 | Funding period: 2015 - 2017
A recently identified subset of T cells that reside in the skin are critical to combat viral infection. However, little is known about how these T cell populations are formed. This project will characterise the pathways required to generate these cells and will identify novel factors that regulate their development. A greater understanding of how these T cells can be generated will open the way to utilise these cells in new vaccine strategies.
