2nd p53 Workshop in Japan ’19

Two years after our first p53 workshop in Japan, we had the pleasure to organize our second p53 Workshop in Japan together with Rieko Ohki (National Cancer Center) and Kaori Fujita (Kyoto University). Thank you all for coming – we had a full room! We are very grateful to MBSJ2019 and our biggest thanks go to our speakers: Tomoo Iwakuma, Koji Itahana, Kiyoto Kamagata and Shinpei Yamaguchi.

List of speakers and talk titles:

  • Rieko Ohki (National Cancer Center) – Identification of a novel p53 downstream pathway important in neuroendocrine tumor development
  • Tomoo Iwakuma (University of Kansas Medical Center) – Regulation of oncogenic function of misfolded mutant p53 by the molecular chaperone HSP40 / DNAJA1
  • Kiyoto Kamagata (Tohoku University) – How does tumor suppressor p53 search for target DNA sequence? -single molecule approach-
  • Koji Itahana (Duke-NUS Medical School) – Unique strategy in ESC to choose p53 target genes for maintaining cellular homeostasis
  • Shinpei Yamaguchi (Osaka University) – Regulation of pluripotent level by p53 family genes
  • Kaori Fujita (Kyoto University) – p53 isoforms in cellular senescence, aging, cancer, and reprogramming
  • Marco M Candeias (MaRCU) – Translational switch during integrated stress response (ISR) provides oncogenic capability to tumor suppressor p53
