Isoforms conference

4th International P53 Isoforms meeting and 9th International P63/P73 Workshop

CCBIO's International Affiliated Investigator Jean-Christophe Bourdon is main organizer of this International p53/p63/p73 Isoforms Workshop, and the program also features CCBIO PI Bjørn Tore Gjertsen. The conference will for the first time combine two workshops – 4th International p53 isoforms meeting and 9th International p63/p73 workshop into one unique meeting and bring together researchers from the entire field as well as clinicians and pharmaceutical companies to discuss new developments and to generate fruitful collaborations.

Over the last decade, new findings in the field have dynamically reformed and broadened the roles of p53 and its family in cancer, ageing, development, immune response and metabolism. Understanding the p53 family isoforms’ mechanism offers exciting perspectives in the treatment of degenerative diseases such as cancer, neurodegeneration and other age-associated pathologies as well as infectious diseases.

We believe that the organisation of the International p53/p63/p73 isoform workshop is valuable opportunity for young scientists to present their work and discuss with p53 experts.

Several abstracts will be selected by the organisation committee for oral presentation.

The historic town of Dubrovnik will play host to a p53 conference for the first time and give an opportunity for new networking between world class scientists. Picturesque Dubrovnik is situated on the very South of Croatia, surrounded by crystal clear Adriatic Sea and fortified with medieval walls.

The conference is organized by Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb.

We are looking forward seeing you in Dubrovnik!
