The plasticity and migratory responses of innate lymphoid cells: more similarity to T cells than you thought
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series The identification of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) was a major step forward in developing a better understanding of host defense. Although ILC lack the capacity for antigen recognition, they show striking similarities with T cell subsets in both the transcription factors that govern their differentiation and the effector cytokines they produce. One major difference in the existing concepts of ILC and adaptive T cell responses is that the former are considered to act largely as tissue resident effectors whereas T cells migrate from secondary lymphoid tissues of activation to peripher...

Epithelial molecules shaping immunosurveillance by local T cells
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series The thesis of conventional immunology is centralized control whereby responses to infection within tissues are decided within lymph nodes, from which effector T lymphocytes are dispatched to quell regional disturbances. But this cannot explain the observation that many tissues at steady state are T cell-rich. Do such cells simply provide responses to infection or do they provide more generalized means to sustain tissue integrity and organ function? Likewise, how are such cells able to respond to acute stress but not drive constitutive tissue inflammation? And, how do immune cell &nd...

Hijacking of immune regulatory mechanisms in lymphoid malignancies
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series Signalling through the B cell receptor (BCR) is central to the development and maintenance of B cells. In light of the numerous proliferative and survival pathways activated downstream of the BCR, it comes as no surprise that malignant B cells would co-opt this receptor to promote their own growth and survival. However, direct evidence for BCR signalling in human lymphoma has only come to light recently. Roles for antigen-dependent and antigen-independent, or tonic, BCR signalling have now been described for several different lymphoma subtypes. Furthermore, correlative data implicat...
