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 (supra-regional) unit that provides gynecological cancer care for the entire province and is also referred cases from all over Canada. Dr Gilbert strongly believes in research to improve outcomes in patients with cancer and heads the Women’s Health Research Unit of the MUHC. Her main area of interest is the early detection of uterine and ovarian cancer in a stage when it is curable. To this end, she has set up a network of satellite clinics called the D.Ov.E.E. (Diagnosing Ovarian and Endometrial Cancers Early) clinics. These clinics provide free, open access and fast-track investigations to postmenopausal women with symptoms associated with ovarian cancer. The Women’s Health Research Unit is also very active in multinational clinical trials for gynecologic cancer.
