    The Role of CD4+ Memory T cell Subtypes in Periodontal Disease Recurrence
    Role Description: PROJECT NARRATIVE Periodontitis is characterized by episodic recurrence throughout the patient's life, a growing global public health problem due to its bidirectional association with general health. This project will identify the generation, persistence, and pathogenic role of periodontitis-induced CD4+ memory T cell subtypes in a model of recurring periodontal disease. Using a novel T cell periodontal enriching strategy, we will dissect the functional properties of constitutively versus pathologically developed CD4+ memory T cells and assess the therapeutic potential of targeting these cells to prevent periodontitis recurrence.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
