The Harrington Lab is primarily focused on maternal-offspring immunology, including the transfer of rare maternal cells (maternal microchimerism) in utero and via breastmilk exposure. We have recently deeply characterized breastmilk T cells to better understand the immunologic potential of these cells in the offspring. Based on these observations, and as part of an expanding interest in shared mucosal T cell phenotypes, we have developed a novel, non-invasive method to sample luminal T cells from the female genital tract.
