Event Type:  Lecture (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Skin resident T cells in human health and disease
Description:  The healthy skin of an adult contains approximately 20 billion memory T cells, nearly twice as many as are present in the entire circulation. Most T cells in human skin are nonrecirculating resident memory T cells (TRM). TRM persist long term in the absence of antigens, have impressive effector functions and provide rapid on-site immune protection against known pathogens in peripheral tissues. Although the TRM differentiation program likely evolved to provide rapid protection against pathogens, autoreactive, aberrantly activated and malignant resident memory cells contribute to numerous human inflammatory diseases including psoriasis, contact dermatitis and mycosis fungoides. This lecture will discuss both the science and medicine of resident memory T cells, exploring how these cells contribute to healthy immune function and discussing what is known about how these cells contribute to human inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
