What is p53 and why is it described as the ‘guardian of the genome’?

What is p53 and why is it described as the ‘guardian of the genome’? How is p53 linked to cancer? Join us for a Mosaic and Science on Google+ Hangout on air as we speak to Sue Armstrong about all things p53!

Sue is the author of the popular science book “P53: The Gene that Cracked the Cancer Code” and she recently authored a fascinating article on Mosaic Science about “Brazil’s Cancer Curse” (read more at http://mosaicscience.com/story/brazils-cancer-curse).


This HOA will be hosted by Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe. You can tune in on Sunday October 18th at 6 PM UK time. The hangout will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/ScienceHangouts) after the event.
