The 19th International Workshop on p53 is a biennial event of great international scientific renown and is being held for the first time in Italy, in Trieste, May 13-16, 2024. This workshop represents a beacon in the field of global oncology research, bringing together leading scientists engaged in the study of the tumor oncosopressor p53, a crucial gene in cancer. Cancer continues to be a leading cause of death globally, with an estimated 10 million deaths in 2020. Among them, an estimated 4.5 million may have developed cancer with mutations in the oncosuppressor TP53. With the participation of international experts from across disciplines, the latest discoveries in this field will be discussed.
