The molecular regulation of CD8+ tissue-resident memory (Trm) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) is incompletely understood. Li et al. report that the transcription factor Bhlhe40 was required for Trm cell and TIL mitochondrial fitness and epigenetic programming. They further identify an epigenetic regimen promoting TIL functional program for cancer immunotherapy.
