The IARC TP53 database was initiated by Monica Hollstein and Curt C. Harris in 1991 and further developed and maintained by Pierre Hainaut and Magali Olivier.

Curators: Magali Olivier (2000-2020), Caroline Gaud (2018), Audrey Petitjean (2007-2012).

Web developments over the years have been done by the IT companies Lambda+ and Micropole, and with the help of Ewy Mathe, Thierry Menard, Jose-Luis Gonzalez-Pisa and Lucile Alteyrac.

The project has been funded by IARC and supported by the European Community (contracts: QLG1-1999-00273, FP6, MUTp53 project) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Science.
