Brett McCray, MD, PhD

Johns Hopkins University

Brett McCray is a physician-scientist who studies inherited forms of peripheral neuropathy with the goal of identifying common pathogenic mechanisms, broadly applicable therapeutic targets, and treatments for these diseases. He received his MD/PhD training at the University of Pennsylvania, and completed neurology training in the Harvard BWH-Mass General Neurology Residency program. He then completed a Neuromuscular Fellowship at Johns Hopkins University before joining the Johns Hopkins Neurology faculty. His specific interest is Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, and his current work is focused on understanding the pathogenesis of CMT type 2C, which is caused by mutations in the calcium-permeable cation channel TRPV4.
