A native of Michigan, Dr. Kober received a four-year Dean’s merit scholarship to attend the University of Michigan from which she graduated with Honors, earning bachelor degrees in cell and molecular biology as well as Spanish. Working in an integrated biochemistry/biophysics laboratory, Dr. Kober studied lipid bilayer interactions with nanotechnology for future drug delivery methods. Bioconjugate Chemistry named her co-authored article—“The interaction of polycationic polymers with supported lipid bilayers: Nanoscale hole formation and enhanced membrane permeability”—one of the best articles over the past 25 years. Additionally, studying abroad in Spain allowed Dr. Kober to become fluent in Spanish, a skill that she routinely uses to build rapport with Spanish-speaking patients.
Dr. Kober went on to complete medical school at the University of Michigan during which she was a fellow at the World Health Organization.
