Dr. Partha Kasturi

Dr. Partha Kasturi, PhD , a dedicated father, loving husband and an outstanding research scientist passed away unexpectedly on June 2nd due to massive heart attack. Partha was an associate professor at the department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Partha was an outstanding researcher with diverse training in agricultural sciences, microbiology and transporter proteins. His highly cited research was on mitochondrial diseases and he had published several papers in high impact factor journals such as Nature and JBC.

Being an avid runner, Partha loved to run on many trails in and around Lenexa and Shawnee. In addition to being a uncommonly gifted marathon runner, was also an prolific Indian Carnatic classical music vocalist.

Partha leaves behind his dear wife Geetha and his loving daughter Karishma (age 9), his Mother and Father in India, brother Kasturi and family, sister Rekha, Suresh and family, Vasantha and family, Vasu and family, Naren and family, Prasanna, Seema and family, Eshan, Para and family, Krishna, Rashmi and family, Suresh and family and host of friends and relatives. Clearly, the void left by Partha will never be be filled and an entire community is mourning and in a state of shock which will take a long time to recover from.

Partha, you will be missed dearly by all of us!

Visitation is on June 5th from 12-1.30 PM. Kansas City Funeral Directors 4880 Shawnee Dr, Kansas City, KS 66106
