About Jennifer M. Bain, MD, PhD


Jennifer Bain, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor of neurology and pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Bain completed both an M.D. and PhD. as well as general pediatrics residency at Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School in New Jersey. She then trained in Child Neurology at New York Presbyterian – Columbia University Medical Center in New York City and is a board-certified neurologist with special certification in Child Neurology seeing both inpatient and outpatient pediatric neurology patients. Her clinic focuses on diagnosis and management of autism, cerebral palsy and neurodevelopmental disorders in addition to genetic disorders associated with such conditions.


Her early research career focused on spinal cord and brain development after injuries such as spinal cord injury and perinatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. During her residency training, her clinical research focused on studying autonomic dysfunction in children with autism spectrum disorders and neurological complications during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. She currently works as a physician scientist at Columbia University specializing in general pediatric neurology with expertise in development, behavioral neurology, autism and cerebral palsy. Her clinical research has focused on studying the genetics of neurodevelopmental disorders including autism and cerebral palsy. The genes she has worked closely on include HNRNPH2 and related disorders, GRIN disorders, KIF1A. She is interested in understanding clinically meaningful measures in families affected by neurodevelopmental disorders and measuring longitudinal trajectories in such disorders.
