The Genetic Cancer Predisposition Working Group of the Society of Pediatric Oncology and Hematolgy is an expert committee, that focusses on CPS in children. The group has the following aims:

  • Investigating the role of germline genetic changes as the cause of childhood cancer

  • Improving the cancer surveillance, treatment and care for children with CPS

  • Investigating the biologic basis of cancer in children with CPS

We meet on a regular basis to discuss collaborative projects in order to move the field forward. We also discuss complex cases and provide second opinions. Information on our working groups can also be found on the webpage of our society.
