Promote functional analysis of DAMP and develop new therapeutic agents for autoimmune conditions and cancer

While inflammation is important for the protection of the body, persistent or excessive inflammation is considered to be a cause of many pathogenesis such as autoimmune diseases, cancer, or metabolic diseases. Among them, self-molecular groups such as nucleic acids, which are called "Damage Associated Molecular Pattern (DAMP)" released by death of cells such as necrosis, are attracting attention, but their detailed functions and pathogenesis are still under investigation. We will promote functional analysis of DAMP and establish a disease treatment method by developing nucleic acid medicines.
