Dr. Steiling is an Assistant Professor of Medicine. She sees patients in the multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Clinic and attends in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Boston Medical Center.
Dr. Steiling’s research focuses on applying high-throughput genomic tools and emerging computational methods to develop improved diagnostics, prognostics, and risk stratification tools for phenotypically complex lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer. Dr. Steiling’s primary research involves gene expression profiling of the airway epithelium from individuals with COPD in order to understand the molecular mechanisms of this disease and its relationship to lung cancer. She has also worked to apply airway gene expression profiling to the diagnosis of lung cancer, to understand the relationship between smoking-induced changes in gene expression in the bronchial airway and the upper airway, and to elucidate the relationship between smoking-induced changes in airway gene and protein expression.
Research interests include:
-Airway gene expression
