    Board Certified Medical Oncologist and Hematologist, Constantin Dasanu, MD, PhD, is dedicated to providing personalized cancer care for his patients and their families. He received his M.D. degree summa cum laude from the Nicolae Testemitanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Chisinau, Moldova, and his Ph.D. in Immunology from the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at New York Medical College. Dr. Dasanu also completed his training in Hematology & Transfusion Medicine in his home country Romania. 

    “My immunology background offers me a unique clinical perspective as contemporary cancer therapies include a multitude of targeted agents, monoclonal antibodies, various biologics and vaccines,” states Dr. Dasanu. He treats patients with a variety of solid cancers, malignant melanoma and blood conditions. He serves as Director of Hematologic Malignancies at Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center (ELCCC). 

    Dr. Dasanu is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California in San Diego, a major collaborative affiliate of ELCCC. He is the Director of Research at ELCCC and a principal investigator for a number of clinical trials. He presents his research findings at national and international conferences. He is the recipient of several teaching awards including the prestigious Thomas R. Preston MD Excellence in Teaching Award at the University of Connecticut in 2011. 

    A prolific medical writer, Dr. Dasanu published more than 200 scientific and scholarly articles in prominent specialty journals including Journal of Clinical Oncology, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Thoracic Oncology and British Journal of Haematology among others. He is the editor of oncology sections at the Expert Opinion on Pharmacotherapy, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy, and Current Medical Research and Opinion. He is a peer reviewer for Blood Journal and Leukemia Research. 

    Armed with the knowledge of science, Dr. Dasanu feels that he can make a real difference in the lives of his patients. “The field is constantly changing and, therefore, I keep learning and constantly applying the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art treatments which ultimately benefit my patients,” states Dr. Dasanu. “My role is one of providing my patients with a medical plan that offers hope, but not false hope. Treating patients as unique individuals, with respect and compassion, and treating them as I would want to be treated are my ultimate goals in patient care.”
