Dr. Narayanan is a child neurologist practicing in Phoenix, Arizona, with an interest in the genetic/molecular basis of neurological disease. He serves as medical director of the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders at the Translational Genomics Research Institute, also known as TGen. After medical school at Louisiana State University in New Orleans, he did his pediatric internship and residency at Johns Hopkins from 1981-1983. He completed training in child neurology at St. Louis Children’s Hospital at Washington University before returning to the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland as a research fellow in 1986.  He joined the Child Neurology Division at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in 1990, and remained there until his move to Arizona.

Dr. Narayanan, in collaboration with TGen, launched the Neurogenetics Clinic at St. Joseph’s hospital in 2005. This morphed into the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders. Launched in 2012, the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders has been using multiomic methods for the diagnosis of rare childhood disorders.
