What is the background of the project?
The aim of Petteri Arstila's group is to study human T cell development in the thymus, establishment and maintenance of immunological tolerance, and regulatory mechanisms in infection and immunological disease. The focus is on T cell homeostasis (activation, differentiation, memory formation, regulation) in normal and pathological situations, with special interest in autoimmunity.
