p53: The guardian of genome

Speaker: Anne-Lise Børresen-Dale

Prof. Anne-Lise Børresen-Dale says that p53 is most mutated gene in many different cancers. p53 has many different functions; it has been studied for so many years, but it is still challenging how we can use the p53 status to treat patients. The researchers don’t understand the meaning of p53 at different levels of tumour evolution yet.
