Department of Molecular Medicine and Pathology seminar by Dr Antony Braithwaite, Department of Pathology, University of Otago.
Dr Braithwaite will outline the history of p53 research from its discovery through its evolution as a tumour suppressor to become one of the most studied proteins in the world. He will discuss 4 main areas of research - its origins; how it functions as a tumour suppressor; studies using it as a therapeutic target; and functions of p53 isoforms. He will also highlight the contributions of his lab to each of these areas of research.
