Brett McCray, MD, PhD
Johns Hopkins University
Wolfe Neuropathy Research Prize
I am a physician-scientist with a clinical and research focus on Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, the most common form of inherited neuropathy and the most common inherited neurologic disease worldwide. In addition to caring for patients with CMT and other neuromuscular diseases, I have a basic science lab focused on the pathogenesis of inherited forms of peripheral neuropathy with the goal of identifying common pathogenic mechanisms and novel broadly applicable therapeutic targets. My current work is focused on understanding the pathogenesis of CMT type 2C, which is caused by mutations in the calcium-permeable cation channel TRPV4 (transient receptor potential vanilloid 4).
