MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as crucial regulators of T lymphocyte survival, differentiation and function, all of which are key factors impacting the outcome of adoptive T cell-based immunotherapy. It has become increasingly clear that the adoptive transfer of memory CD8+ T cell subsets is highly correlated with objective clinical responses for patients with advanced cancer. However, it is unclear how to improve the long-term persistence of transferred CD8+ T cells using miRNAs. Here, we highlight the current advances in our understanding of the role of miRNAs in regulating the differentiation of memory CD8+ T cells. We...
