Dr. Narain graduated from medical school in India and moved to the US for her Masters in Public Health-Epidemiology at the Univeristy of Florida, Gainesville, FL. It was here that her journey in rheumatology began. She initially worked in translational research in studying biomarkers in rheumatic diseases under the mentorship of Dr. Westley Reeves. She then moved to Massachussettes where she completed her Internal Medicine Residency training at Metrowest Medical Center, Framingham, MA. This was followed by a fellowship in rheumatology at Hospital for Special Surgery, New York NY. During her fellowship, under the mentorship of Dr. Jane Salmon, her research was focussed on characterizing the role of S1P dysregulation as a pathogenic factor in vascular injury in SLE. This proposal was awarded funding through the Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program (ECRIP) in 2014.
She has authored papers and textbook chapters and also presented at national meetings. She is an active member of the Americal College of Rheumatology (ACR).
