- About RIKEN BRC Cell Bank
===================================

The Cell Engineering Division of RIKEN BioResource Center is a 
not-for-profit public "cell bank" that accepts donations and 
deposits of human and animal cell materials developed by the life 
science research community. 
We examine, standardize, amplify, preserve, and provide cell 
materials to scientists around the world. 
The major cell materials used around the world have been cultured 
cell lines, i.e., immortalized cells. 
In fact, the majority of human cell materials are cancer cell lines. 
There is no doubt that the demand for these cell lines will never 
cease in the field of biology. 
In addition, stem cell lines such as embryonic stem (ES) cells and 
induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are of great value in current 
biology and medical sciences. 
In particular, disease-specific (patient-specific) iPS cells are 
very useful for researches of disease and drug discovery. 
In addition, the CRISPR/Cas9 technology, a recently established 
new genome-editing technology, is rapidly spreading in many fields 
of life sciences. We will collect and provide all kinds of such 
useful cell materials.
Our work is accredited by ISO9001.

  Yukio NAKAMURA, M.D., Ph.D.
