MD, Loyola University - Chicago Stritch School of Medicine



Dr. Kathuria is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine. She attends in the Thoracic Oncology Center and specializes in the management and work-up of thoracic tumors. She sees pulmonary patients at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. In addition, Dr. Kathuria is a member of the BMC Sleep Group with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.

Dr. Kathuria’s research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of lung cancer metastasis. Using various mouse models of lung cancer with different propensities to metastasize, she studies the role of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in lung cancer, a necessary step that epithelial malignancies acquire to invade and metastasize.

She is a member of three research groups at the Pulmonary Center, the Epithelial Group, the Pulmonomics Group and the Lung Cancer Group.

Research special interests include:
-Alveolar Epithelial Cell Biology
-Molecular Biology of Lung Cancer Metastases

Clinical special interests include:
-General Pulmonary Medicine
-Critical Care Medicine
-Thoracic Oncology
-Sleep Medicine
