It would seem that the fields of cell and molecular biology are steeped in irony. While we are taught about the inner workings of a single cell, we have only very recently begun to view the impact of an individual cell without lumping it into a common collective. For instance, advanced single-cell genomic techniques have allowed scientists to study disease from an entirely new perspective—a direction that is readily apparent within immunology research. As such, investigators are now able to look at individual T-cell phenotypes and begin to group them based on how they are immunologically primed.

In this GEN webinar, we will hear about a newly developed experimental framework to probe for priming sites in systemic immune compartments for determinants of helper T cell-induced immunopathology. Additionally, we will hear how T-cell subsets can be defined by their priming site—which could be the key to a greater understanding of T-cell biology and the design of novel therapies.

A live Q&A session followed the presentation, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelist.
