The fifth international γδ T-cell conference was held in Freiburg, Germany, from May 31 to June 2, 2012, bringing together approximately 170 investigators from all over the world. The scientific program covered topics such as thymic development and the mechanisms of ligand recognition and activation, the interaction of γδ T cells with other immune and non-immune cells and its implications for homeostasis, infection, tissue repair and autoimmunity, and the role of γδ T cells in malignancy and their potential for novel immunotherapies. Here we discuss a selection of the oral communications at the conference, and summarise exciting new findings in the field regarding the development, mode of antigen recognition, and responses to microorganisms, viruses and tumours by human and mouse γδ T cells.
