Medical puzzle

Dr. Nada Jabado – a pediatric hemato-oncologist at the RI-MUC - and colleagues at the Montreal Children's Hospital and McGill University discovered a genetic mutation that causes a disease that looks like cancer and then connected their patient cases with others from across the globe carrying the same mutation. Their work was featured on the Radio-Canada’s science TV show Découverte (10:12 min).
