Research Focus


My research program focuses on cancer predisposition syndromes that present in childhood. A cancer predisposition syndrome is a genetic condition that increases a person’s risk of developing one or more cancers in their lifetime. Our team has developed an eHealth decision-support tool, called MIPOGG (McGill Interactive Pediatric OncoGenetic Guidelines), that helps doctors recognize their patients with cancer who need to be referred to Genetics because they are at increased risk of having a cancer predisposition syndrome. MIPOGG is an ehealth tool containing 90 tumour-specific algorithms that use clinical, family history and tumour features to generate a recommendation for genetic referral based on the risk of a cancer predisposition syndrome.
