COSINE-100 is a dark matter direct detection experiment with low-background NaI(Tl) crystals to test the DAMA collaboration's claimed detection of the dark matter annual modulation. The COSINE-100 experiment is situated at the Yangyang Underground Laboratory in South Korea and consists of eight NaI(Tl) crystals with a total mass of 106 kg and 2000 liters of liquid scintillator as an active veto. The physics run of the experiment began in September 2016 with a background rate of ~3 counts/kg/keV/day in the energy region between 2 and 6 keV. In this talk, recent results from the annual modulation search with COSINE-100 will be presented.
