Dr. Lowery received her M.D. from Loyola University Chicago in 2004 after completing an undergraduate BS with honors degree in 1999. She completed residency training in a combined internal medicine and pediatrics program at Loyola University medical center in 2008 and went on to complete fellowship in adult pulmonary/critical care. The focus of her training was in cystic fibrosis and lung transplant care. During fellowship she investigated stem cells in the omentum and the ability to transform these cells. Following her academic appointment to the faculty at Loyola University Chicago as assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics, she was funded by the NIH with a K23 patient oriented career mentored grant focusing on alcohol use in organ donors and the effect on lung transplant. Her clinical and research interests include lung transplant and cystic fibrosis. In 2017, Dr. Lowery and the lung transplant program at Loyola were chosen to participate in the CFF's Lung Transplant Consortium.
