Dr. Mara Kölker is a postdoctoral research fellow at the CSPH. She is a urology resident at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Germany. She finished her medical degree at the University of Hamburg in 2018. Focusing on shared decision-making within physician-patient communication for her doctoral thesis, her current research focuses on long-term outcomes and disparities in genitourinary cancer. Outside of medicine, being a multiple international and national champion in rowing (e.g. World Champion at the World Rowing Junior Championships in the Women’s Eight) rowing is still a passion in her life. Besides rowing, Mara enjoys reading and cooking in her free time.
