Dr. Bipasha Mukherjee-Clavin is an Assistant Professor of Neurology in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She cares for patients with neuromuscular disorders, with a special focus on patients with peripheral neuropathy, immune-mediated neuropathy, and inherited neuropathy (also known as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease). She sees patients in the Johns Hopkins Peripheral Nerve and multidisciplinary Charcot-Marie-Tooth clinics, and performs electromyography in the Johns Hopkins EMG lab.
As a stem cell biology-trained scientist, Dr. Mukherjee-Clavin's research is focused on the use of patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells to model genetic Schwann cell and peripheral nerve disorders to undercover novel pathways and potential treatments. During her PhD she published one of the first studies of CMT1A using patient derived stem cells (Comparison of three congruent patient-specific cells types for the modelling of a human genetic Schwann-cell disorder. Nature Biomedical Engineering. volume 3, pages 571–582 (2019)). In 2022, she was awarded the Passano award, given to a promising early career physician-scientist in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Mukherjee-Clavin completed her undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley. She then completed her MD/PhD degrees, Neurology residency, and clinical Neuromuscular fellowship in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She joined the Johns Hopkins Neurology faculty in 2022.
