As an associate professor, he teaches at Unil's Faculty of Biology and Medicine. He is also working closely with the Lavigny Institute on the development of the future University Service for Neurorehabilitation (SUN). Professor Sokolov is also a member of numerous consortia, committees and working groups, including the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation, the European Academy of Neurology, the Swiss neurorehabilitation society and the World Health Organisation aimed at implementing new approaches to neurorehabilitation.
