After receiving her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of North Carolina, Dr. Cardin worked for two years in a translational research lab that used gene targeting techniques to create mouse modeling systems to better understand human disease. After this invaluable research experience, she attended medical school at the University of North Carolina, and went on to match at NYU in Diagnostic Radiology. Dr. Cardin did her internship in Internal Medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, NY, and this year of patient care led her to switch paths and she subsequently came to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to complete her residency in Internal Medicine. She completed her Fellowship in Hematology/Oncology in 2009, after serving for one year as the Carol and James O'Hare Chief Fellow. She completed a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation at Vanderbilt in 2010.
Dr. Cardin specializes in malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract with a research interest in phase I and pancreas cancer trials. She is an active member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Association for Cancer Research.
