Using immunocamouflage to increase transplantation safety

What is this research about?

The immune system includes an army of white blood cells that help protect the body from foreign invaders. A T cell is a type of white blood cell that plays a central role in the body’s immunity. T cells recognize and react to foreign markers on bacteria and viruses as well as non-self tissues and organs and thus are a significant barrier to successful transplantation of organs and tissues.
