T cells belong to a group of white blood cells called lymphocytes and play a large role in the immune response. An increased understanding of T cell immunity will provide new insights into the etiology of human autoimmune disease such as diabetes.

This volume reviews the latest developments and discusses the evolution of T cell immunity, thymic requirements, and how to prevent T cell-dependent autoimmunity.



* Discusses new discoveries, approaches, and ideas in T cell immunity * Contributions from leading scholars and industry experts * Reference guide for researchers involved in molecular biology and related fields
