  • This Review discusses the latest insights into the mechanisms regulating T cell receptor (TCR) signalling responses. In particular, the authors focus on how TCR signalling is regulated during thymocyte selection and during T cell homeostasis.

    Review Article
  • Oncolytic viruses can target multiple steps in the cancer–immunity cycle and can be engineered to express therapeutic genes and, as a result, can be usefully integrated in combination tumour immunotherapies. Here, the authors discuss features of oncolytic viruses that make them appealing agents for combination approaches in cancer immunotherapy.

    Review Article
  • The intestine harbours a complex array of intraepithelial lymphocytes that patrol the epithelial layer and exert rapid cytolytic function. Here, the authors compare the different cytolytic populations and suggest that this diversity results from evolutionary pressure to protect this important barrier.
