Since their initial identification more than 10 years ago, innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) have emerged as denizens of an immune realm parallel to that of T cells. Here I highlight basic similarities shared by all and underscore features related to development, tissue residency and regulation that distinguish ILCs from T cells. I further discuss the potential of ILCs as promising targets for therapeutic intervention in human diseases.
