In December 2019, Dr. Igor Koralnik joined the Northwestern Medicine Staff, where he currently serves as the Chief of Neuroinfectious Diseases and Global Neurology. He also works as the Archibald Church Professor of Neurology at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. Since the spread of COVID-19 began, Dr. Koralnik has leveraged his expertise from the AIDS epidemic to offer insight and conduct research regarding the neurological manifestation of COVID-19, and has recently published a study in the Annals of Neurology where he reviewed the neurological complications of COVID-19.

Dr. Koralnik started the Neuro COVID-19 Clinic at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in May 2020, where he and his team investigate, diagnose and manage neurological symptoms of patients affected by the illness.

The Institute for Global Health Seminar Series is held the first Friday of each month, September through July, and will feature the research and ideas of outstanding global health leaders at Feinberg, the larger Northwestern community, and beyond.
