Nature Milestone on T Cells
Don’t miss the latest Nature Milestone on T cells, key players in the immune system – published with the support of sponsors.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world’s been thinking about how best to fight infection. And two cell types in particular have become immunity celebrities – T and B cells.
But these cells were not always so well understood, in fact, their function only came into focus in the 1950s and 1960s, when two researchers working on opposite sides of the world started to piece together the mystery of a previously ignored organ called the thymus.
In this Nature Milestone, we celebrate important moments since the discovery of T cells in 1961 with an interactive timeline, fascinating video, and gorgeous animation – well worth a watch!
