3rd German p53 Workshop


The 3rd German p53 Workshop will take place in Jena, from Monday, September 19th, to Tuesday, September 20th organized by Christine Blattner from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Martin Fischer from Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI).


The transcription factor p53 is the arguably best-known tumor suppressor that is mutated in approximately the half of all human cancers and dysregulated in many more. It is the most studied gene and protein with more than 110,000 publications in PubMed. Despite the vast body of literature, much remains to be understood regarding the molecular mechanisms elicited by p53 in different contexts.

Since 2017, the bi-annual German p53 Workshop brings together leading experts in the field working in Germany. Following a delay caused by the Corona-pandemic, we are looking forward to host the 3rd German p53 Workshop at the FLI in Jena.
