Project: What makes long-lived memories?

Beattie Group

We have a number of unique T cell priming reagents that generate liver-resident memory T cells with different lifespans. We are using advanced immunological techniques such as single cell RNA sequencing and CRISPR gene knockdown to figure out why some Trm live longer than others.
