Koch is a member of seventeen organizations, including the Association of American Physicians, American College of Rheumatology, American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Central Society for Clinical Research. She has served as a consultant to over thirty companies and as a grant reviewer for the National Institutes of Health, Veterans Administration, and several private organizations, such as the Arthritis Foundation and Scleroderma Foundation. She has been a reviewer for over thirty-five journals and has been an editor for several highly regarded journals in the field of rheumatology, including Arthritis and Rheumatism. She has contributed over two hundred and ten peer-reviewed publications and thirty-three books on rheumatology and angiogenesis, and has edited a book on angiogenesis and disease.
