Professor Kobertz received his Ph.D. from the Department of Chemistry at MIT. He was a Howard Hughes postdoctoral fellow with Christopher Miller at Brandeis University and was also a recipient of a Burroughs Wellcome Career Award in the Biomedical Sciences. His past research has investigated how potassium channels in the body play a role in various afflictions, from heart attacks to hearing loss. Currently, his laboratory focuses on N- and O-glycosylation of ion channels and developing novel tools to visualize extracellular fluxes from cells and living animals.
