Cellular immunology and immune regulation

This section aims to publish studies concerned with the immunological activities of cells and on the interactions among cells and molecules of the immune system, which spans studies in development, differentiation, effector function, and memory. The section also welcomes submissions on antibody and cell-mediated immune responses.
