Objectives

Cell Engineering Division in RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC)" was originally established as the "RIKEN Cell Bank" in 1987. It is a unique, non-profit public organization for deposit, isolation, standardization, preservation, and distribution of cultured animal cell lines produced by the life science research community. Recently, in order to contribute to the fields of developmental biology, transplantation medicine, and regenerative medicine, the banking of primary human cells, such as somatic stem cells, has been started. The staff conducts not only banking of cell resources but also researches and developments related to cell engineering, such as establishment of novel animal cell lines possessing multi-potency and development of technology to culture primate embryonic stem cells efficiently.
