About MeI’m a radiation oncologist specializing in genitourinary and gastrointestinal cancer. I received my Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Investigation at the University of Miami, and I completed my medical training at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. I am a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) and the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO). In addition, I serve as the site PI for two national randomized trials, and I am a part of the NRG Genitourinary Cancer Core Committee.
I’ve been published in numerous journals and books, and my research focuses on the impact of different types and frequencies of radiation on patients with cancer. I’ve also presented my research to groups such as the American Radium Society and ASTRO. That’s one of the great things about the OSUCCC – James; it gives medical professionals the opportunity to connect the most current research to the treatment plans of our patients.
What I love most about The James is our focus on targeted treatment plans. There is no routine cancer and each patient requires a specific treatment plan targeted to their specific type of cancer. We’re able to provide plans that best fit their needs, which leads to improved outcomes, faster responses and fewer side effects. Working at The James – where we focus on research and clinical care – makes me a better doctor every day, and I’m honored to be a part of this team.

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 03/28/2017, Dr. Diaz Pardo has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
