Gregory Tew and researchers Until recently, medical researchers had little hope of experimentally manipulating naïve T cells to study their crucial roles in immune function, because they were largely impenetrable, says polymer scientist Gregory Tew. Tew says, "they were so far off limits we could not readily get inside to investigate their workings."
