Research & Clinical Trials

Dr. Batus participates in extensive lung cancer research along with colleagues at other medical universities. She currently oversees seven clinical trials at the Rush Cancer Center, including an investigation of cell growth inhibitors and several drug studies.

In 2008, she was the winner of the Illinois Medical Oncology Society Award for her research on whether the presence of certain molecular markers in cancer cells might enhance treatment to reduce tumor size in non-small cell carcinoma, a type of lung cancer.

She co-authored a study that linked the lack of a certain enzyme in non-small cell carcinoma tissues to shortened survival, a prognosis made even worse if the patient received chemotherapy.

Batus has been practicing medicine since 2005. She is board certified in internal medicine with a subspecialty in medical oncology. She received her medical degree from Rush Medical College and completed her internal medicine residency at Rush University Medical Center. Batus also completed a fellowship – extensive training in the subspecialty of hematology and oncology – at Rush University Medical Center.
