Research Summary

‘My research focuses on peripheral nerve disease. Our group has a longstanding interest in inherited neuropathies which is the main area of interest.  I particularly work on Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), the hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathies (HSAN) and the distal hereditary motor neuropathies (HMN). Up until recently I have concentrated on identifying causative genes / mutations for these neuropathies and in performing large scale genotype / phenotype studies. More recently I have become interested in the functional consequences of mutated neuropathy genes and currently have a number of projects exploring specific genes for CMT1, CMT2, HSAN1 and HMN.’  Mary Reilly

Mary is a former  Chair of the Association of British Neurologists, co-chairs the Inherited Neuropathy Consortium with Mike Shy on research into CMT and other related conditions and is Vice Chair of International CMT and related disorders.
