Basic Research Principles

The objective of RCAI is to develop a basic and comprehensive understanding of immune systems to build basic knowledge in this area. This will contribute to the discovery of the cause of such allergies as atopy and cedar pollenosis and the development of treatments, as well as the development of treatments based on the immunological mechanisms behind autoimmune disease and cancer, and an understanding of the mechanisms regulating rejection in organ transplantation and the development of methods to combat this. RCAI is also aimed at promoting research that can contribute to the development of more advanced healthcare systems for aging populations in the 21st century.
