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 while being the only test to distinguish cancerous versus non-cancerous cells in pre- and post-menopausal women. With its ability to detect cancers as early as stage 1, this revolutionary test will change the future of ovarian and endometrial detection.
