Steve Dougherty

Lecturer of Undergraduate Human Anatomy & Cell Biology

My name is Steve Dougherty and I’m a faculty member of the Medical Science Program at Indiana University.  My primary teaching assignment is Basic Human Anatomy (A215) and Disease and the Human Body (M131).  In addition, I have assisted in Human Tissue Biology (A464). 


I attended Indiana University’s Medical Center in Indianapolis for my graduate studies.  While there I studied primarily Cell Anatomy, Gross Anatomy, and Cell Physiology.  I was responsible for assisting with the instruction in Medical Histology and Medical Neuroanatomy courses, and in addition, I taught the Medical students human dissection.  My research interest was identifying extracellular matrix components which affect fluid transport by kidney cells in culture.  The data I collected was used to help create a model of how cysts develop in Polycystic Kidney Disease.


I’m married to a Marian University grad (Holly) and I have two wonderful stepchildren, Mathesen and Baustin.  I enjoy many outdoor activities.  My wife and I love to travel and are very involved in our sons’ academic and extracurricular pursuits.

  • Microenvironment-induced downregulation of miR-193b drives ovarian cancer metastasis

    Apr 28th, 2015

    Anirban K Mitra, Assistant Professor of Medical and Molecular Genetics has recently published his research in Oncogene. His study links paracrine signals from the microenvironment to the regulation of a key miRNA - miR-193b - in ovarian cancer cells, which promotes metastatic colonization.
