Jennifer M. Bain, MD, PhD

Jennifer Bain, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor of neurology at CUMC, in the Division of Child Neurology. Dr. Bain completed her MD and PhD at Rutgers—New Jersey Medical School. Her thesis work focused on cytokine signaling and progenitor cell differentiation after perinatal hypoxic-ischemic injury. She continued her training in general pediatrics at University Hospital in Newark, NJ and Hackensack University Medical Center, where her clinical research focused on studying autonomic dysfunction in children with autism spectrum disorders.

Dr. Bain subsequently completed her child neurology residency here at Columbia, with research interests in the neurological outcomes of children undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as well as neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. She will be seeing both inpatient and outpatient pediatric neurology patients, and is eager to develop programs for neurodevelopmental disabilities, as well as a follow-up clinic for ECMO survivors.
