    Dr. Karageorgiou was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and raised in Athens, Greece, where he graduated from Athens College and subsequently obtained a medical degree and a PhD degree from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Upon completion of his medical studies, he worked as a post-doctoral associate at the Brain Sciences Center of the University of Minnesota under the mentorship of Apostolos P. Georgopoulos, MD, PhD, studying the encephalographic brain patterns in health and diseases such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, and schizophrenia. He subsequently completed residency training in Neurology at the University of Minnesota, where he also served as the Associate Chief Resident for Research and Education. After his residency, he completed a Behavioral Neurology Fellowship as well as an Atlantic Institute Fellowship in Equity in Brain Health at the Memory and Aging Center at the University of California San Francisco and a Sleep Medicine Fellowship at the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center. He subsequently joined the faculty at the University of California San Francisco providing care and conducting research at the intersection between sleep and cognitive disorders, with a special interest in elucidating distinct patterns of brain rhythm disruption in dementia across the sleep wake cycle. He also directs research projects at the interface of sleep and dementia in his native Greece at the Neurological Institute of Athens. Dr. Karageorgiou’s primary goal is the provision of optimal care to his patients and their families, a goal which also guides his translational research.
