Jessica Robinson-Papp, MD, MS
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Neurology
Dr. Robinson-Papp’s clinical and research interests include neuropathy, and the neurologic complications of HIV/AIDS including chronic pain. She is the recipient of grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study HIV-associated neuropathy, and from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to study methods of improving opioid prescribing safety, and is the medical director of the Manhattan HIV Brain Bank. In addition to her research, Dr. Robinson-Papp performs electromyography (EMG), autonomic testing, and intraoperative neurologic monitoring, to aid in the diagnosis of neurologic disorders. She is the senior attending neurologist for the Institute for Advanced Medicine, where she provides neurologic care to people living with HIV/AIDS.

Toward safer opioid prescribing for chronic pain in high risk populations: implementing the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guideline in the primary care HIV clinic (TOWER; AHRQ R18 HS025641)This project engages patients and their helathcare providers in a collaborative process to develop and test a method of prescribing opioids more safely.Role: Principal Investigator
Manhattan HIV Brain Bank (NIH U24 MH100931)
This is a longitudinal organ donation study examining the neurologic, neuropsychological, psychiatric, and pathological effects of HIV.
Role: Co-investigator and Medical Director
Hippocampal Inflammation as a Pathophysiology for Psychosis (NIH R01 MH110418)This grant explores the gut-brain axis in psychosis with a focus on vagal dysfunction.Role: Co-investigator
Motor Dysfunction in cART-era HIV: Neural Circuitry and Pathogenesis (NIH R01 MH100931)
This study will use neurogenomics to identify molecular changes in brain regions associated with motor dysfunction in HIV on neuroimaging studies.
