Professor, University of Toronto & SickKids. Toronto, Canada.

Dr. Malkin is active in clinical oncology practice as well as in research. He specializes in the genetics of childhood cancers and is an active collaborator on our DICER1 project and he has referred a numbers of patients identified in his clinical practice to our research program. We recently secured joint funding to establish a pan-Canadian DICER1 Network to enable the identification of DICER1 mutation carriers from pediatric medical centers Canada wide, and we collaborate on a new project to develop an app to guide pediatric physicians in making decisions with regards to referral of their patients to genetic services.
