The mammalian immune system implements a remarkably effective set of mechanisms for fighting pathogens 1 . Its main components are haematopoietic immune cells, including myeloid cells that control innate immunity, and lymphoid cells that constitute adaptive immunity 2 . However, immune functions are not unique to haematopoietic cells, and many other cell types display basic mechanisms of pathogen defence 3 – 5 . To advance our understanding of immunology outside the haematopoietic system, here… 
Mucosal epithelial cells: the initial sentinels and responders controlling and regulating immune responses to viral infections
TLDR
The study revealed that mucosal epithelia within specific organs such as the lung or intestine mediate epithelial-specific interactions with hematopoietic immune cells, which opens a new area of immunology research, which may help to obtain additional insight into immune responses beyond those of hematoietIC immune cells.
Epigenetics and tissue immunity-Translating environmental cues into functional adaptations.
TLDR
The basic concepts of tissue immunity are reviewed, the technologies available to profile epigenetic modifications in tissue immune cells are discussed, including those that enable single-cell profiling, and how these mechanisms influence the development, phenotype, activation and function of different tissue immune cell subsets are considered.
Epithelial cells of the intestine acquire cell-intrinsic inflammation signatures during ageing
TLDR
A cell-intrinsic, persistent inflammation phenotype in aged epithelial cells, which might contribute to systemic inflammation observed during ageing, is revealed in mouse intestinal epithelium.
Tissue-Specific Contributions to Control of T Cell Immunity
TLDR
This study discusses the tissue-specific signals that may impact T cell differentiation and function, including the microbiome, metabolism, and tissue- Specific innate cell imprinting and argues that these individual contributions create tissue- specific niches that likely play important roles in T cell differentiate and function controlling the outcome of the response to Ags.
Transcriptomic Remodelling of Fetal Endothelial Cells During Establishment of Inflammatory Memory
TLDR
The finding that both ECFCs and HUVECs establish memory in response to an initial viral exposure, resulting in an altered subsequent response to lipopolysaccharide suggests that the capacity for inflammatory memory may be a common trait across different endothelial cell types but also indicates that the specific downstream targets may vary by developmental stage.
Stromal cells in tertiary lymphoid structures: Architects of autoimmunity
TLDR
The role of fibroblasts is described in the context of TLS formation and its functional maintenance in the tissue, highlighting their potential role as therapeutic disease targets in TLS‐associated diseases.
Therapies Targeting Trained Immune Cells in Inflammatory and Autoimmune Diseases
The concept of trained immunity has recently emerged as a mechanism contributing to several immune mediated inflammatory conditions. Trained immunity is defined by the immunological memory developed
Fibroblasts as immune regulators in infection, inflammation and cancer.
TLDR
This cross-disease perspective highlights the importance of tissue context in determining fibroblast-immune cell interactions, as well as potential therapeutic avenues to exploit this knowledge for the benefit of patients with chronic infection, inflammation and cancer.
Actin Cytoskeleton Dynamics and Type I IFN-Mediated Immune Response: A Dangerous Liaison in Cancer?
TLDR
The crucial role of actin cytoskeleton dynamics in participating in a viral mimicry activation with profound effect in anti-tumor immune response is highlighted and the role of Type I IFN pathways in resistance to anti-cancer treatment is summarized.
Stromal–immune cell crosstalk fundamentally alters the lung microenvironment following tissue insult
TLDR
This review examines how the ‘geography of the lung microenvironment’ is altered in various disease states; more specifically, how this influences lung epithelial cells and fibroblasts via their communication with immune cells and each other.

Fibroblastic reticular cells at the nexus of innate and adaptive immune responses
TLDR
This review will outline the current knowledge on FRC functions in secondary lymphoid organs such as lymph nodes, spleen and Peyer's patches and will discuss how FRCs contribute to the regulation of immune processes in fat‐associated lymphoid clusters.
Stromal and hematopoietic cells in secondary lymphoid organs: partners in immunity
TLDR
Examining ways in which stromal‐hematopoietic crosstalk has important consequences for regulating immune cell function within SLOs influences the adaptive immune response is examined.
Tissue-Resident Macrophage Enhancer Landscapes Are Shaped by the Local Microenvironment
TLDR
A combination of tissue- and lineage-specific transcription factors form the regulatory networks controlling chromatin specification in tissue-resident macrophages, and the environment is capable of shaping the chromatin landscape of transplanted bone marrow precursors, and even differentiated macrophage can be reprogrammed when transferred into a new microenvironment.
A single-cell survey of the small intestinal epithelium
Intestinal epithelial cells absorb nutrients, respond to microbes, function as a barrier and help to coordinate immune responses. Here we report profiling of 53,193 individual epithelial cells from
Conservation and divergence in the transcriptional programs of the human and mouse immune systems
TLDR
Two large compendia of transcriptional profiles of human and mouse immune cell types are compared, finding that global transcription profiles are conserved between corresponding cell lineages but to a lower degree, suggesting that distinct regulation may underlie some of the conserved transcriptional responses.

TLDR
Current knowledge on the contribution of Ag-presenting LECs as regulators of peripheral T cell responses in different immunological contexts, including autoimmunity and cancer is reviewed and discussed.
Epithelium: at the interface of innate and adaptive immune responses.
TLDR
Recent studies that bear on the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which epithelial cells help to shape the responses of dendritic cells, T cells, and B cells and inflammatory cell recruitment in the context of human disease are discussed.
Systems Immunology: Learning the Rules of the Immune System.
TLDR
This work focuses on how natural variation is used to find patterns, infer principles, and develop predictive models for two areas: (a) immune cell activation-how single-cell profiling boosts the authors' ability to discover immune cell types and states-and (b) antigen presentation and recognition-how models can be generated to predict presentation of antigens on MHC molecules and their detection by T cell receptors.

TLDR
The chromatin accessibility and transcriptional landscapes in 13 human primary blood cell types that span the hematopoietic hierarchy are defined and 'enhancer cytometry' is enabled for enumeration of pure cell types from complex populations.
