Dr. Lucy Gilbert is a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the Department of Oncology at McGill University. She is the Director of Gynecologic Oncology at McGill University and McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), which is a designated level-IV (highest level) unit that provides gynecological cancer care for the entire province. Dr Gilbert heads the Women’s Health Research Unit of the MUHC, which focusses on research that produces practical and immediate benefits for women with cancer. Her main area of interest is the early detection of ovarian and uterine cancer when it is still curable. To this end, she has set up a network of satellite clinics called the DOvEE (Diagnosing Ovarian and Endometrial Cancers Early) which provide  open access and fast-track investigations to women over symptomatic women over 45 with symptoms associated with gynecologic cancers.  She and her team have developed a new genetic pap-test called DOvEEGene for detecting  these cancers very early before they even cause symptoms. The Women’s Health Research Unit is also very active in multinational clinical trials investigating new precision therapies for gynecologic cancers.
