Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

B and T cells play key roles in adaptive immune responses. Research into cellular immunology provides an understanding of T cell recognition, activation and dysregulation, and their roles in protecting against infectious diseases and cancer and autoimmune diseases. Similarly, studies in the field of humoral immunity are crucial to determine the roles of antibodies in providing such protection, the functionality of different immunoglobulins, and the activity of distinct B cell subsets.

In recent years, new sophisticated and cutting-edge methodologies have become available, allowing us to gain insights into lymphocyte biology and functions and their mechanisms of action. These innovative techniques can represent extremely useful tools to characterize vaccine-induced cellular and humoral responses.

This Special Issue will focus on the advances and application of these new methodologies in studying cellular and humoral immunity against vaccine-preventable infectious diseases. We request original comprehensive research articles and reviews on this topic, which must be focused on the keywords reported below and explain how these studies have changed or enhanced our understanding of T cell immunity.
