Resident memory T cells (Trm)

Project Details

During an immune response, T cells develop into memory cells that protect from secondary infection. Tissue-resident memory T cells (Trm) are a subset of memory T cells, residing permanently in peripheral sites such as the lung, liver and small intestine. Trm cells have also been found in cancer where they play an important role in tumour control. In this project, we utilise new tools that allow us to specifically study the development of Trm cells and target them in conditions of tumour growth.
