NIAID investigators and collaborators at @ImmunoScape and @JHUcovidplasma recently published a study in @jclinicalinvest characterizing #Tcell responses in people who recover from #SARSCoV2 infection. jci.org/articles/view/…
T cells are a type of white blood cell part of the immune system & may allow for long-term protection against #SARSCoV2. Learning more about natural infection can help guide development of improved treatments and vaccines.
