Brief description NKT cells are a type of lymphocyte with the ability to prevent a broad range of diseases including cancer, autoimmunity, infection and graft rejection. Sometimes, NKT cells also cause diseases, including allergy and atherosclerosis. Therefore, the ability to modulate these cells an important health objective. This project will investigate how NKT cells become activated by studying their surface receptors and what these receptors interact with.
