Giselle Yvette Lopez
Assistant Professor in Pathology

I am a physician scientist with a clinical focus on neuropathology, and a research interest in brain tumors. Originally from Maryland, I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Maryland, completing degrees in Physiology and Neurobiology as well as Spanish Language and Literature. I subsequently came to Duke for my MD and PhD, and discovered a passion for brain tumor research, and quickly realized that this was my life's calling. After completing a residency and fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco, I returned to Duke as an Assistant Professor of Pathology. Clinically, I now specialize in neuropathology, with my research focusing on brain tumors of all types. By better understanding these tumors, I hope to identify new ways to treat these tumors and improve the lives of patients with brain tumors.
