Protein kinase is involved in signal transduction within various cells, and their rapid activation or control disorder is linked to many diseases such as cancer, inflammatory disease, and autoimmune disease.
Therefore, protein kinase is treated as an important molecular target when finding treatment. At the Chemical Kinomics Research Center, we use low molecular organic compounds to conduct chemical biology research for new medicine that controls kinase function and search for new kinase molecular targets and functions.
Based on our research, we are defining the mechanism to effectively treat disease at the molecular level, and applying it to new drug development. We have strong cooperative relations with various research areas, and our research environment is equipped with excellent research teams and facilities.
Our current focus is in cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and depression. For efficiency in action mechanism research, our center has a medicinal chemistry team, activity assessment team, and a chemical biology team.
