  • Board Certified Medical Oncologist and Hematologist, Constantin Dasanu, MD, PhD, is dedicated to providing personalized cancer care for his patients and their families.

    Dr. Dasanu received his medical degree summa cum laude from the Nicolae Testemitanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Chisinau, Moldova, and his PhD 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, Yeshiva University Hospitals, New York and his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at New York Medical College. Dr. Dasanu also completed his training in Hematology and Transfusion Medicine in his home country Romania.

    My immunology background provides a unique clinical perspective for my cancer patients as contemporary therapies include a multitude of targeted agents, monoclonal antibodies, various biologics and vaccines,” states Dr. Dasanu. Prior to joining Eisenhower Medical Center, he served as a clinical associate at St. Francis Hospital, a major teaching affiliate of the University of Connecticut. Committed to excellence in teaching, he has held an appointment as an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

    In addition to general oncology, Dr. Dasanu has special interests in the area of lung cancer and hematologic malignancies. Active in clinical research, he has served as a principal investigator in a number of clinical trials and presented his research at national and international conferences. A prolific medical writer, Dr. Dasanu published more than 150 scientific and scholarly articles in prominent specialty journals including Journal of Clinical Oncology, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Thoracic Oncology, British Journal of Haematology and Expert Opinion series among others. For some time, he has been serving on the Editorial Board of the Expert Opinion on Pharmacotherapy, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy, and Current Medical Research and Opinion.

    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.
