As a medical anthropologist by training, Professor Sharp is most concerned with critical analyses of the symbolics of the human body, where her research sites range from cosmopolitan medical centers within the United States to urban centers in sub-Saharan Africa. From 1986 until 1995, her work as an Africanist was based in a polycultural plantation community of northwest Madagascar, where initial research addressed spirit mediumship and the gendered nature of healing. She later returned to the same site in the mid-1990s to examine other forms of affliction, most notably the effects of the state's short-lived socialist project in shaping the historical and political consciousness of Malagasy school youth.

In 1991, she initiated research focusing on organ transplantation, procurement, and donation in the United States. Key foci include medical ideologies, body commodification, and the transformative properties of organ transplants specifically in reference to the social construction of the self. Her current research focuses on scientists engaged in generating new, non-human sources of transplantable organs, including mechanical heart devices and xenotransplantation (where animals, and more particularly swine, define potential sources of usable parts). This project is most concerned with how scientists imagine the promises and moral consequences of their work. Lesley Sharp is the recipient of numerous external grants and four teaching awards. Sharp has received numerous awards, including the 2008 New Millennium Book Award from the Society for Medical Anthropology for her book Strange Harvest; at Barnard she is the recipient of the Tow Family Award for Innovative and Outstanding Pedagogy, a Presidential Research Award, and she currently holds an Ann Whitney Olin endowed chair.
