Dr. Lober is a neurosurgeon at Dayton Children's Hospital. Through Dayton Children’s affiliation with the Wright State University & Premier Health Neuroscience Institute, Dr. Lober is researching brain tumors in children and using high-level imaging to find out what is going on inside them. This initiative is bridging the gap between pediatric neurosurgeons, pediatric oncologists, physicists, mathematicians, radiologists, pathologists, biochemists and many others within Dayton Children’s and the Neuroscience Institute.
Coming to Dayton Children’s from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California, Dr. Lober completed a fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery and pediatric neuro-oncology, a rare combination for a pediatric surgeon. He served his residency at Stanford Hospitals and Clinics in Stanford, California. He earned his medical degree and a PhD in Biomedical science at Georgia Regents University in Augusta, Georgia.
Dr. Lober is a member of the Scientific Committee for The Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC). The CBTTC is a collaborative, multi-institutional research program dedicated to the study and treatment of childhood brain tumors. The CBTTC provides free and open access data to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Dayton Children's is one of sixteen primary members, which includes some of the finest pediatric institutions in the world.
"It's a humbling thing when someone entrusts you with their child. It really feels like you are holding all of their hopes and dreams in your hands. I don't take that lightly at all."
