“MIPOGG represents 5 years of hard work. The app will make significant advances in pediatric oncology.” —Dr. Catherine Goudie
The MIPOGG (McGill Interactive Pediatric OncoGenetic Guidelines) application brings together scientific collaborations from more than six countries and is already in use in more than 40 countries. The app provides access to an online health platform that will revolutionize the detection of cancer predisposing syndromes in young people, a first in pediatric oncology that brings new hope to young patients.
