  Welcome to the DNA repair Laboratory Español Português

Coordinator: Carlos Frederico Martins Menck


The DNA repair group is part of the Department of Microbiology and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, located in the University of São Paulo - USP, Brazil. We are a research group interested in the field of DNA damage, repair and their biological implications, such as cell death and mutagenesis. DNA lesions are constantly introduced by environmental agents (ie. pollution and even sunlight), genotoxic chemical products or also byproducts of the cellular metabolism, contributing to cancer formation and aging in human beings. To keep genetic information intact is essential to species survival, and thus, DNA repair processes are highly relevant mechanisms, evolutionarily conserved in all living organisms, from bacteria to human beings.
