    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 University of Southern California, Los Angeles County Hospital, 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).

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
