Research topics
Developing a novel therapeutic strategy to infectious diseases based on innate immune function of T lymphocytes
T lymphocytes play an essential role in adaptive immunity. Within this population, we have recently found a novel "Memory-phenotype (MP) cells" possessing innate immune function. This study aims to clarify how MP cells are generated and maintained in steady state as well as what immunological functions they have in host defense.
