Thymus ageing and regeneration following chemotherapy for T cell replenishment

Project: Research

Project Description

The thymus is critical for T cell development but naturally loses its capacity to produce T cells with ageing. This can impact on immune recovery following clinical treatments for cancer such as chemotherapy which also damages the thymus. This donation will contribute towards research into understanding the extent of thymus damage from chemotherapy treatments and the capacity for thymus regeneration with ageing.
