Dr. Deanna Saylor is a neuro-infectious diseases specialist and assistant professor of Neurology and Director of the Hopkins Global Neurology Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

She then completed an internship in internal medicine at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center followed by neurology residency and neuro-infectious diseases fellowship training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Her clinical and research interests include neurological complications of HIV, global health and neurology, neuroepidemiology, and improving the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in resource-limited settings with few neurologists.
