Exploring new ways of activating the body's most important defense against cancer - the p53 tumour suppressor

Project Description

This project focuses on the most important anti-cancer molecule in the body. The function of this anti-cancer molecule is compromised in almost all cases of cancer.

In this project we will explore a new pathway to activate p53 to kill cancer cells. This may lead to a novel approach to anti-cancer treatment using resources from our own body.
