Current and past members of the lab

The research in our lab spans the full range from basic molecular and cellular biology to clinical research and is only possible with the support of many talented and dedicated people from diverse backgrounds and levels of training. We are thankful for the contributions of all the current and past lab members who have helped propel our work forward. We are also always open to inquiries from anyone interested in joining the lab.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

I am from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I had my B.S. in Biotechnology from the University of Science (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), M.S. in Medical Sciences from the University of Tsukuba (Japan), and Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Wayne State University (Detroit, US). I love to visit different countries around the world and explore their diverse cultures. One of my favorite hobbies is reading mangas and webtoons. Outside the lab, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, especially spending priceless moments with my son!

Brett A. McCray

Principal Investigator

Brett A. McCray, MD, PhD, is a physician scientist with training in neuromuscular disease and a background in cellular and molecular neuroscience. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Neurology at the University of Michigan. He received his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania where he worked with Dr. J. Paul Taylor on the pathogenesis of hereditary neuropathy due to mutations in Rab7. He then completed neurology residency at the Mass General-Brigham Neurology program, followed by neuromuscular fellowship at Johns Hopkins. He then spent remained at Johns Hopkins as an Assistant Professor in Neurology for seven years before moving to the University of Michigan in 2023. His laboratory research is focused on the pathogenesis of hereditary neuropathy with a particular interest in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2C (CMT2C) and related disorders that are caused by gain-of-function mutations in the cation channel TRPV4. He studies cellular and animal models to gain insight into the role of TRPV4 in health and disease. He has also established a TRPV4 neuropathy patient registry and specialized multidisciplinary natural history study to better define the course of the disease and to lay the foundation for a future clinical trial.
