I’m a breast medical oncologist and researcher who joined the Division of Medical Oncology in 2016 after fellowship training in hematology and oncology at Indiana University. I have a proven track record of academic and clinical excellence. I earned my medical degree in Mumbai, India and my master’s degree in public health at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. I completed a general internal medicine internship at the University of Buffalo School of Medicine – State University of New York before embarking on my fellowship training at IU. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2017.

My research involves identifying predictive biomarkers in BRCA gene-mutated tumors and triple-negative breast cancers. I also have research interests in women who are at high risk for breast and ovarian cancers, and in the correlation between breast density and obesity in healthy women.

I have published manuscripts in scientific journals and presented original articles at national conferences. I am a reviewer for multiple medical journals and am a member of several medical organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American College of Hematology and American Medical Association.

Working at the OSUCCC – James gives me the resources and technology to provide the best care possible to my patients. I try and educate each patient about their condition, so they can make active decisions regarding treatment. At The James, we define cancer by its biologic and genetic makeup, knowing that it’s different in each person. Through collaboration and cutting-edge technology, we create improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Sardesai has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
