For over 100 years, ground-breaking results of immunological research have been awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Nobel Prizes have been awarded for outstanding research on various aspects of humoral immunity including the complement system (Bordet, 1919), the chemical structure of antibodies (Edelman and Porter, 1972), the immune network and the discovery of monoclonal antibodies (Jerne, Köhler and Milstein, 1984), and the discovery of somatic gene rearrangement during antibody formation (Tonegawa, 1987).
The current Special Issue of Cells is devoted to the memory of ground-breaking research in cellular immunology, and how such discoveries have paved the way for today’s understanding of cell-mediated immunity controlling innate and adaptive immune responses. Such milestones include the discovery of macrophages (Metchnikoff, Nobel Prize together with Ehrlich in 1908), the conceptualization of immunological tolerance (Medawar and Macfarlane Burnett, 1960), the discovery of MHC molecules (Benacerraf, Dausset and Snell, 1980), the discovery of MHC-restricted T-cell antigen recognition (Doherty and Zinkernagel, 1996), the identification of innate immune receptors and the role of dendritic cells (Beutler, Hoffmann and Steinman, 2011), and the recent recognition of the importance of negative immune regulation in cancer therapy (Allison and Honjo, 2018).
This Special Issue aims to collect papers in the field of cellular immunology with a focus on articles that illustrate how early ground-breaking work awarded with a Nobel Prize has influenced top-notch research until the present day. In this sense, we welcome articles dealing with immune cells and their role in innate and adaptive immunity.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
