Richard D. Wood is an American molecular biologist specializing in research on DNA repair and mutation. He is known for pioneering studies on nucleotide excision repair, particularly for reconstituting the minimum set of proteins involved in this process, identifying proliferating cell nuclear antigen as part of the NER complex and identifying mammalian repair polymerases. The NER DNA repair pathway is a complex mechanism that cells use to repair DNA damage caused by ultraviolet sun exposure. The pathway is essential to life, and children born with mutations in genes coding for NER proteins develop xeroderma pigmentosum or XP. XP patients cannot repair DNA mutations, particularly pyrimidine dimers, caused by UV and must be continuously protected from sunlight to prevent fatal skin scarring and cancers. By the 1980s, scientists had uncovered how NER works in bacteria but this pathway remained poorly understood in mammalian cells.
