One Step Closer

The Dagenais Joly-Smith Fund is dedicated to supporting The DOvEE Project under the leadership of Dr. Lucy Gilbert. The DOvEEgene project brings screening of ovarian and endometrial cancers one step further with the new genomic uterine pap test, DOvEEgene test, developed by Dr, Gilbert and her team of McGill researchers; it provides a safe and minimally invasive method for earlier diagnosis of ovarian and endometrial cancers. Currently in its final stage of clinical trials, Dr. Gilbert and her team are closer than ever to making the DOvEEgene test a standard in women’s health care.
