Dr. Narayanan has a special interest in the genetic basis of neurological disorders. In 2005, he began a clinical research artnership with TGen by establishing the CHC-BNI-TGen Pediatric Neurogenetics Center (Center for Excellence) at the Children’s Health Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. In 2012 he became the Medical Director for TGen’s Center for Rare Childhood Disorders. The Center uses next generation sequencing to help diagnose children with neurological disorders of unknown genetic etiology.
In the summer of 2014 he moved his research lab to TGen. His research interests include the neurobiology of genetic disorders (genes to pathogenesis), cell adhesion molecules and synapse formation. Current projects deal with Rett syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC), Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) and other pediatric neurological disorders. He is the director of the Neurofibromatosis Planning Clinic and the Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic at CRS (Children’s Rehabilitative Services)
