MAIT cells represent an abundant human T cell subset, enriched in tissues. The functions of these cells range from inflammation to tissue repair and homeostasis. In this talk Professor Klenerman will discuss how this cell type achieves this range of functionality, and their role in settings such as infection and vaccination.

A light lunch light will be provided for in-person attendees at 12:30pm. Registrations essential.
