About Sandra Danielle Algaze, MD

Dr. Sandra Algaze is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of Southern California focusing on gastrointestinal cancers. Dr. Algaze completed her residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and her clinical fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at Los Angeles County University of Southern California Medical Center where she served as a chief fellow.

Her research endeavors focus on the discovery of innovative pathways in cancer pathogenesis, metastases and treatment resistance, the development of novel therapies for gastrointestinal tumors, and the assessment of predictive and prognostic biomarkers and molecular profiles. Additionally, she is actively investigating and working to address the complexities surrounding the care of older patients with cancer, and healthcare disparities arising from barriers to specialty care access and the underrepresentation of minorities in cancer clinical trials. Notably, she was part of the inaugural cohort of the Robert A. Winn Diversity in Clinical Trials: Career Development Award (Winn CDA).

I am dedicated to delivering high-quality, patient centered, and compassionate cancer care with a multi-disciplinary, team-based, personalized and comprehensive approach. I value the opportunity to develop long term relationships with patients and their families and I am committed to helping patients live longer, healthier lives.
