What about:

1) the discovery that T-cells recognize protein fragments (peptides) which
bind to MHC molecules?

2) Immunediversity and immunematuration in B cells created by somatic mutation?

3) The structure of T-cell receptor?

4) The cristal structure of MHC

5) Interaction between helper T cells and B cells

6) Thymic negative selection
