Kathy-Ann Koralek was born in Mexico City and has lived and studied in Spain, France, Italy, the U.K and the U.S.A. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of California Irvine and did research and teaching  in neuroscience before she decided to join a medical device company and work on developing collaborations between business and academia with the purpose of advancing the field of bone healing. After a decade building bridges between basic research and industry, she focused her interest on international higher education by working with international organizations that encourage student and research training exchanges between countries with most resources and countries with limited resources.
