Tissue-Resident Memory T Cells

Organized by Cornelia L. Trimble of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Rachael A. Clark of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Leo Lefrançois of University of Connecticut Health Center, the three-day conference will:
• Focus on the unique characteristics of tissue-resident memory T cells, aberrant activities of which can give rise to inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, including psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease;
• Explore how tissue-resident T cells are retained in peripheral locations where they can promote immunity, how they mediate their functions and how they might be elicited by vaccination;
• Stimulate collaborations and insights that would not otherwise have occurred to inform vaccination strategies for both infections and cancer, as well as novel therapies for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
