    Board Certified Medical Oncologist and Hematologist, Constantin Dasanu, MD, PhD, is dedicated to providing personalized cancer care for his patients and their families. After receiving his medical degree, he pursued a Ph.D. in Immunology, followed by training in Hematology & Transfusion Medicine at the Carol Davila University of Medicine in Bucharest, Romania. He then completed his residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at New York Medical College.

    “My immunology background offers me a unique clinical perspective as contemporary cancer therapies include a multitude of targeted agents, monoclonal antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates, 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).

    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. Dr. Dasanu is a clinical professor at the University of California in San Diego, a major collaborative affiliate of ELCCC. He is a 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 authored more than 250 published works in specialty journals including Journal of Clinical Oncology, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Immunotherapy, British Journal of Haematology, Journal of Thoracic Oncology and Nature Medicine 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, New England Journal of Medicine and Leukemia Research.

    Armed with the knowledge of science, Dr. Dasanu strongly believes that he can make a 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.”
