About Robert Hugh Fryer, MD, PhD


Dr. Fryer is a specialist in pediatric migraine and sees both children and teens with headache disorders in our comprehensive Columbia Headache Center. In addition, Dr. Fryer specializes in treating pediatric patients with a wide range of general neurologic issues, including seizures, developmental delay, concussion, etc.


In research, Dr. Fryer has focused on the elucidation of genes involved in neuronal migration, a key early step in CNS development. Dr. Fryer was able to identify a gene, Nisch, which regulates trafficking of receptors to the cell surface of migrating neurons. Mutations in this gene have recently been identified in patients with autistic spectrum disorders.
