Dr. Koeberle completed his Ph.D in Neurosciences at McMaster University in 2001. He then studied under Dr. Mathias Bähr at the University of Göttingen Germany as a postdoctoral fellow. After his final postdoctoral studies under Dr. Lyanne Schlichter (Toronto Western Research Institute) he was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Anatomy. Dr. Koeberle’s research is focused on the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the adult central nervous system. Specific focus is placed on traumatic brain injury and stroke (ischemia), through the use of injury models of the visual system. Dr. Koeberle currently teaches neuroanatomy for the Department of Physical Therapy, is the Course Director for the Physician's Assistant Program and contributed in the undergraduate stream at the University of Toronto.

ANA 300Y Human Anatomy and Histology
Structure of the human body and its relationship to function. Basic human cytology, histology, gross anatomy, and neuroanatomy.
PT1005Y Neuroanatomy
Neurological Physical Therapy Practice.
PAP 112 Physician Assistant Program
This course covers functional human anatomy. Learning opportunities include examination of prosected anatomical specimens in the laboratory, animations, and computer-based simulations.
The core content of the course is covered in a series of pre-recorded lectures with accompanying lecture notes. Anatomy will be studied from two perspectives:
Regional anatomy, where body divisions and their anatomical relations are studied, will be addressed in the anatomy laboratory during the residential portion of the course.
Systemic anatomy, in which each organ system is studied as a functional unit, will be addressed during the non-residential portion of the course.
