To better understand Trm cells, Dr. Mackay is working to uncover the factors that regulate Trm cell development. Trm differentiation is a complex, multistep process, but Dr. Mackay has identified a host of genes that are required for Trm cell development and she has shown that Trm specific genes can be targeted to increase Trm cell deposits.
