She specializes in stem cell transplantation, immunotherapy, CAR T-cell therapy, and treating patients with multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders, including amyloidosis and Waldenström macroglobulinemia. She is also involved in clinical trials to develop novel therapeutics for multiple myeloma.

Originally from India, Dr. Kaur earned her bachelor's degree in chemistry and chemical biology from the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. She then earned a master's degree in medical sciences from Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and completed internal medicine residency training at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. She then obtained advanced training in hematology and oncology through a fellowship at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York.

Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in medical oncology and in hematology, Dr. Kaur joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2020.

Dr. Kaur’s clinical and research interests include improving outcomes for patients with hematologic malignancies, particularly multiple myeloma, by developing newer cellular and immunotherapy therapies, and she publishes and delivers presentations on her work regularly.
