About Divya T. Koura, MD

Divya T. Koura, MD is a board-certified hematologist and medical oncologist who specializes in treating people with cancers of the blood and lymph system, including leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.

She is part of the joint UC San Diego Health / Sharp HealthCare Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) Program, which provides patients with the unique opportunity to receive care from the same physician throughout all phases of blood cancer treatment. This includes initial diagnosis, treatment to help achieve remission, care during stem cell transplant procedures, and follow-up survivorship care.

Dr. Koura offers chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy to adults with relapsed or refractory B-cell lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. CAR T-cell therapy harnesses the patient's own immune cells to recognize and kill cancer cells. It is just one of many types of personalized cancer therapies offered at UC San Diego Health.

As an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine, Dr. Koura instructs medical students, residents and fellows at UC San Diego School of Medicine. Her clinical research focuses on graft versus host disease in stem cell transplantation patients. She has coauthored numerous abstracts and peer reviewed articles, and her work has appeared in Blood and Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation, among others.

Prior to joining UC San Diego Health, Dr. Koura was a hospitalist at The Queen's Medical Center and a clinical instructor in the Department of Medicine at University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu.

She completed a fellowship in hematology and medical oncology with a focus in bone marrow transplant at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. Dr. Koura completed a residency in internal medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, where she also earned her medical degree. She is board certified in internal medicine, hematology and medical oncology.

Dr. Koura is a member of the American Society of Hematology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation.
