The Molecular Treg team works on the molecular aspects of regulatory T cell homeostasis. We have previously identified new subsets of Tregs, capable of controlling the vaccine response, and uncovered a fundamental asymmetry in the immune regulation of Tregs. We have also characterised the homeostasis control of Tregs, identifying the key players in Treg apoptosis.
