Project context and summary :
Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are the most recently identified components of the innate immune system. ILCs colonize different tissue sites and react promptly to microenvironmental perturbations. Due to their high plasticity, ILCs can shape their functional output in response to local cues. As such, ILCs play roles under homeostatic conditions and in the context of infection, chronic inflammation, metabolic diseases and cancer. Diverse ILC subsets (NK cells, ILC2) have been shown to regulate the metabolic homeostasis. Metabolic states affect cellular functions and have been shown to play an important role in the regulation of adaptive immunity. In contrast, almost nothing is known about innate lymphocytes metabolism and the importance of energy regulation for ILC function. This project will study metabolic profiles in human ILC subsets under diverse environmental conditions. Enhancing or interfering with ILC activity could ultimately represent a novel useful therapy for chronic inflammatory diseases.Related team publications :
