Immunosuppressive medication is therefore necessary to prevent rejection and protect the transplanted kidney. Previously, it had not been possible in humans to identify these specific T cells due to their...Project: The Immune Privilege of the Hematopoietic Stem Cell NicheMonday, January 26, 2015Dr. Joji Fujisaki, MD. PhD, was recently awarded a prestigious 2015 Schaefer Research Scholar Award by Columbia University, the selection for which is based upon “outstanding merit for the proposed research and as carried out in the past year; along with the likelihood of outstanding future research. See...Dr. Donna Farber, et alThursday, November 6, 2014Mechanisms for human memory T cell differentiation and maintenance have largely been inferred from studies of peripheral blood, though the majority of T cells are found in lymphoid and mucosal sites. We present here a multidimensional, quantitative analysis of human T cell compartmentalization and maintenance over six...
