Yachana Kataria, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Pathology and Lab Medicine at the Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. Before arriving at the university, Dr. Kataria completed a fellowship in clinical chemistry and was the assistant director of clinical chemistry at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Yachana Kataria, Medical Director of Clinical Chemistry Laboratories at Boston Medical Center, focuses on bringing public health to the clinical laboratory. Leveraging data analytics in laboratory medicine can offer valuable insights for patient care and population health. Her research, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, assesses the durability of seroimmunoglobulins and she also studies risk factors for multiple myeloma. Laboartory medicine plays a crucial role of laboratories in healthcare, advocating for partnerships with data analytics to support value-based care, optimize patient outcomes, and reduce costs.
