Overview

We mainly focus our research on application of recombinant antibody engineering for research reagents or diagnostic products. We especially try to develop new functional monoclonal antibodies, which stimulate DNA repair, using monoclonal antibodies against DNA damage. We hope to contribute to prevent the occurrence of cancer and neurological abnormalities in DNA repair-deficiency disorders, such as xeroderma pigmentosum.
