About Dr. Durand
Dr. Durand completed training in clinical and basic science. While completing his residency in internal medicine, at Loyola University School of Medicine in Chicago. He completed an American Heart Association/Bugher Foundation Fellowship in Molecular Biology investigating Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Dilated Cardiomyopathy. He was awarded a Robert Woods Johnson Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Molecular Genetics. This body of work lead to Localization of a gene to Chromosome 1q32 and Identification of the gene as Troponin, one of the first genes for Familial dilated Cardiomyopathy.
After completion of his clinical fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine, He also completed clinical fellowship in Immunology/Advanced Heart Failure/ Circulatory Support and Cardiac Transplantation. He served as Assistant Medical Director of the Heart Transplant Service at Baylor College of Medicine.
He was recruited to MD Anderson Cancer Center to establish a cardiomyopathy program and a fully integrated interventional cardiology program. He was the first to establish a cardiomyopathy service within a cancer hospital and was able to establish standards for cardioprotection prior to Anthracycline based therapies and investigate novel mechanisms which lead to recovery of cardiac function in chemotherapy induced cardiomyopathy from Anthracyclines, Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors and radiation induced cardiomyopathy.
Dr. Durand developed the largest DNA/Tissue bank of Chemotherapy induced Cardiomyopathy to detect polymorphisms to predict risk of development of heart failure. He has developed the first cardiac device clinic at MD Anderson utilizing mobile device monitoring of patients with arrhythmias’ and heart failure. He has over 100 publications in peer reviewed journals.
He serves as an IRB Co-chair and is a national and international speaker for cardioncology, he was recently appointed to the American Heart Association New Cardioncology Council and serves as Co-PI on several clinical trials for Stem Cell Therapy for Anthracycline- induced Cardiomyopathy.

Professor, Department of Cardiology, Division of Internal Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX
My major research is dedicated to understanding the molecular genetics of cardiomyopathies, primarily the identification of genes responsible for cardiomyopathy of all etiologies. My work also focuses on defining the molecular mechanisms involved in chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy. Limited studies have been conducted to define the genetic basis of why patients undergoing cancer treatment develop heart failure and respond to standard medical therapy for treatment of heart failure. I have established the world’s largest database of DNA from patients with heart failure secondary to chemotherapy and have future plans to perform genotyping to identify heart failure susceptibility genes which may predispose patients to development of left ventricular dysfunction and potentially response and recovery of cardiac function. To this date we now have over 600 samples and have plans on obtaining 3000 samples. In addition, I have also developed a tissue bank for further expression studies to identify critical pathways which are common to cancer biology and cardiovascular biology.
I was the first to establish a cardiomyopathy service within a cancer hospital and was able to establish standards for cardioprotection prior to Anthracycline based therapies and investigate novel mechanisms which lead to recovery of cardiac function in chemotherapy induced cardiomyopathy from Anthracyclines, Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors and radiation
I developed the first cardiac device clinic at MD Anderson utilizing mobile device monitoring of patients with arrhythmias’ and heart failure. I have over 100 publications in peer reviewed journals.
My areas of scientific interests also includes genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms of Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor-related cardiomyopathy, and acute coronary syndromes in cancer patients with Thrombocytopenia
I serve as an IRB Co-chair and is a national and international speaker for cardioncology, I was recently appointed to the American Heart Association New Cardioncology Council and serves as Co-PI on several clinical trials for Stem Cell Therapy for Anthracycline- induced Cardiomyopathy.
