> My projects in Immuno ConcEpT
The group of Julie Dechanet Merville has demonstrated the participation of γδ T lymphocytes (γδ TL) in the immune response against human CMV. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection can be a major cause of disease and death in immunocompromised patients such as organ transplant recipients. Interestingly, the incidence of CMV infection is lower in seropositive transplant recipients who have an increased number of γδ T cells in comparison to seronegative patients who received a CMV positive graft. These results suggest that γδ TL could have a protective anti-CMV memory function. My project consists in using the mouse model of CMV infection to test this hypothesis..
