We are finishing the year with an amazing collaborative work performed with Dirk Busch’s lab! In this study, we uncovered that SARS-CoV-2-specific CD8+ T cells are detectable up to 12 months post-infection. Moreover, by scRNA sequencing, we were able to develop cytotoxic engineered T cells allowing us to define cell signature for highly functional SARS-CoV-2-specific CD8+ T cells.
Congratulation to all the people involved in this great study!
