“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.
