Founder and CEO, Open Medicine Institute
Andreas Kogelnik, MD, PhD, is the Director of the Institute. He completed his MD at Emory University School of Medicine and his PhD in Bioengineering at Georgia Tech. He trained as a resident in Internal Medicine and fellow in Infectious Diseases at Stanford University and remained there as a post-doc and research faculty before founding the Clinic in 2009 and Institute in 2011.
Dr. Kogelnik’s experience with software, bioinformatics and bioengineering stood him in good stead as he founded the Open Medicine Institute which is committed to revolutionize the study and treatment of difficult chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. The Open Medicine Institute’s OMI-Merit Initiative created a consensus set of funding priorities for the chronic fatigue syndrome field, and the OpenMedNet project optimizes data collection and sharing for doctors and patients. A Patient Registry and Biobank are also part of the OMI.
Dr. Kogelnik is also a practicing physician and is a member of Health Rising’s Ask the Doctors Panel.
