About this Research Topic
The development of protective immunity and memory lymphocytes involves an intricate network of different cell types – each of which is required for the full development of an acute immune response and the formation and maintenance of memory. This series of review articles provides insight into the regulation of a number of these cell types including B cells, CD4+ T cells, CD8+ T cells, regulatory T cells and follicular helper cells. A significant focus of this series is the factors that affect the molecular and transcriptional wiring that is key to the development of these cell types in generating protective memory.
