Brandon Seagle, MD (First Year)
Brandon majored in Biological Chemistry at the University of Chicago from 2002-2006. He studied light-induced structural changes in a large transmembrane protein using X-ray crystallography and melanin photochemistry in human retinal epithelium using electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. He graduated from Stanford University School of Medicine with Scholarly Concentrations in Immunology and Community Health in 2011. After one year of General Surgery residency at the University of Washington in Seattle, he completed PGY1-3 years of residency in Ob/Gyn at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut. While an Ob/Gyn resident, Brandon performed several projects in Gynecologic Oncology and Obstetrics leading to more than 20 submitted manuscripts and 40 presented posters/orals. Currently, Brandon has 21 peer-reviewed scientific publications.
Brandon is the first ACGME/ABOG Flexibility in Residency/Fellowship fast-track fellow in Gynecologic Oncology. His ongoing research includes testing a novel technology applied to ovarian cancer screening, in vitro and in vivo testing of a class of novel therapeutics, characterizing p53 structure-function relationships in gynecologic and breast cancers, validating biomarkers for prediction of benefit from intraperitoneal chemotherapy, evaluating omentectomy as a predictor of recurrence and survival, clarifying independent risks for recurrence of early endometrial cancer, and determining if cervical or placental HPV infection is associated with pre-eclampsia and preterm birth.
