Jessica Robinson-Papp, MD, MS
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Neurology
- Electrodiagnostic Medicine
- Hospital Affiliation
- The Mount Sinai Hospital
Dr. Robinson-Papp is a practicing neurologist and clinical researcher. She studies chronic pain, judicious opioid prescribing, and the neurologic complications of HIV including autonomic neuropathy and HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder. She is the Director of the Mount Sinai NeuroHIV Program and Autonomic Laboratory and the Medical Director of the Manhattan HIV Brain Bank.
A nationally and internationally recognized researcher, Dr. Robinson-Papp is funded by multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Her expertise has been recognized by her inclusion on numerous committees and advisory groups including: the American Academy of Neurology Science Committee, Neurological Sciences Training Review Group, Global HIV Pain Task Force, and Executive Board of the World Federation of Neurology Autonomic Disorders Subspecialty Group.
Clinically, Dr. Robinson-Papp is the senior attending neurologist for the Institute for Advanced Medicine, where she provides neurologic care to people living with HIV and oversees pain management services. In addition, Dr. Robinson-Papp performs electromyography (EMG), autonomic testing, and intraoperative neurologic monitoring, to aid in the diagnosis of neurologic disorders.
Dr. Robinson-Papp offers telemedicine appointments when appropriate. Please call her office to schedule a video visit.

Effects of Vagal Dysfunction on Gastrointestinal and Inflammatory Pathways in HIV (NIH R01DK122853)
This grant examines the relationship between vagal dysfunction, gastrointestinal dysmotility and the cholinergic anti-inflammatory reflex in HIV-associated autonomic neuropathy. Role: Principal Investigator
Motor Dysfunction in cART-era HIV: Neural Circuitry and Pathogenesis (NIH R01NS108801)
We will identify brain regions associated with motor dysfunction by a neuroimaging study, examine cell-specific molecular changes in these regions by neurogenomics, and relate molecular signatures to regional inflammation and vascular disease, in order to discover potential targets for therapy. Role: Co-investigator
Alzheimer’s, Cerebrovascular, & Sociocultural Risk Factors for Dementia in HIV (Alzheimer’s Association)
The purpose of this study is to improve the knowledge and understanding of the effects of social, cultural and genetic factors associated with aging and cognition in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Role: Site Principal Investigator
Study of Aging Latinas/os for Understanding Dementia in HIV (SALUD HIV) (NIH R01AG065110)
This project investigates whether older HIV+ Puerto Rican Latinas/os show worse patterns of decline in cognition and brain integrity compared to other groups and to interrogate the mechanisms conferring risk for these changes. Role: Co-investigator/ISMMS Subaward Principal Investigator
Toward safer opioid prescribing for chronic pain in high risk populations: implementing the Centers for Disease Control Guideline (CDC) guideline in the primary care HIV clinic. (AHRQ R18 HS025641)
This study seeks to determine the best way of supporting HIV primary care providers in adopting safer opioid prescribing practices. 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
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) EPPIC-Net Specialized Clinical Center (NIH U24 NS113849)
This grant supports infrastructure to maintain a clinical trial site in readiness to participate in early phase clinical trials in pain. Role: Principal Investigator
Hippocampal Inflammation as a Pathophysiology for Psychosis (NIH R01MH110418)
This grant explores the role of the gut-brain axis in psychosis with a focus on vagal dysfunction. Role: Co-investigator
Mount Sinai Network of Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials (NIH U24NS107201)
Mount Sinai is a participating site in NeuroNEXT, a consortium of sites committed to participating in clinical trials of therapeutics for a variety of neurologic conditions. Role: Co-investigator
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
