Before coming to the Simons Foundation in 2015, Kim Scobie was the basic science research project manager at the Children’s Tumor Foundation, where she implemented, oversaw and managed basic science projects and initiatives. Before that, Scobie was a postdoctoral fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. During her fellowship, she studied the contribution of epigenetics to the development and persistence of addiction-like behaviors in mice, publishing 10 papers on the topic over her three years there. As a scientist, she works closely with the collaboration’s leadership to support and manage its efforts. Scobie holds a B.S. in biology from Fairfield University in Connecticut and a Ph.D. in molecular, cellular and biophysical studies from Columbia University, where she focused on the neuroscience of learning and memory.
