Angeles Alvarez Secord

Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology


My primary research interest has focused on on novel therapeutics, biomarkers and clinical trial development for ovarian and endometrial cancer. My fundamental goal is to develop a strong translational research program at Duke University in the Gynecologic Oncology Division, where knowledge we glean from our basic science research can be incorporated into our clinical trial program. Specifically, my focus is on biologic therapy and molecular biomarkers to direct therapy in patients with ovarian and endometrial cancers to determine if a strategy that incorporates both clinical and genomic information can improve clinical outcome, minimize unnecessary toxicity, and impact positively on quality of life.

In addition I am interested in robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery for women with endometrial, ovarian and cervical cancers, as well as for benign gynecologic conditions.
