Tissue Tregs: Phenotype & Function

Time: 9:00 am
day: Day Two


  • Non-lymphoid tissues host Treg populations with distinct transcriptomes and TCR repertoires
  • Besides controlling local immune responses, “tissue-Tregs” regulate local homeostatic processes such as metabolism and tissue repair
  • Specifically targeting tissue-Tregs stands to improve outcomes by, first, being more effective and, second, avoiding generalized immunosuppression
