Biography

    Dr. Robinson-Papp’s interests include neuropathy and the neurologic complications of HIV/AIDS.  She is the recipient of a grant from the National Institiute of Neurologic Disorders and Stroke to study HIV-associated neuropathy (K23 NS066789).  In addition to her research, Dr. Robinson-Papp performs electromyography (EMG), autonomic testing and evoked potentials to aid in the diagnosis of disorders of the peripheral nervous system.  She is board certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and in EMG by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

    Dr. Robinson-Papp is also involved in medical education, and oversees the evaluation of inpatients by the NeuroAIDS consult service, and outpatients in the neurology division of the Jack Martin Fund Clinic.  Dr. Robinson-Papp plays a key role in the neurophysiology and NeuroAIDS fellowship training programs, and provides training to healthcare providers visiting Mount Sinai through the AIDS Institute and Arthur Ashe scholarship programs.  She is a lecturer for the Mount Sinai Institute for NeuroAIDS disparities and the AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC).
