Kara A. Nyberg, PhD

With expertise in molecular and cellular biology, Kara A. Nyberg, PhD, specializes in medical and health-related science writing. In the 8 years that she has been writing and editing, Kara has worked with a long list of clients that cater to healthcare professionals, scientific researchers, sales representatives, patients, and the general public. Although her portfolio includes a diverse array of medical topics, Kara most frequently writes in the areas of oncology, infectious diseases, and autoimmune disorders. Kara’s fluency in an array of medical topics can be traced back to her graduate training at the University of Arizona. While there, she focused on basic cancer research in which she studied the structure and function of RAD9, which is the yeast homolog of human BRCA1, a gene implicated in hereditary forms of breast and ovarian cancers. Kara has found that this scientific training, along with her education about molecular and cellular biology in general, lends itself very well to understanding the pathophysiology and management of various diseases and disorders. Kara’s work has appeared in ASCO Daily News, Business Oncology Review, Clinical Advances in Hematology & Oncology, Gastroenterology & Hepatology, the Journal of Cell Biology, and Yale Medicine, as well as on several web sites including those of the American Cancer Society, WebMD, Clinical Care Options, and PeerView.
