An active clinical trialist and health services researcher, Dr. Jagsi’s medical research focuses on improving the quality of care received by breast cancer patients, both by advancing the ways in which breast cancer is treated with radiation and by advancing the understanding of patient decision-making, cost, and access to appropriate care. Her social scientific research includes research into issues of bioethics arising from cancer care and research regarding gender issues, including studies of women's representation in the medical profession. She is the author of over 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and her research is actively funded by multiple independent grants from the National Institutes of Health, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and other philanthropic foundations.

Her contributions have been recognized with her election to the American Society of Clinical Investigation.
