    Bruce Cree, MD, PhD, MAS is a Professor of Clinical Neurology and is the George A. Zimmermann Endowed Professor in Multiple Sclerosis in the Department of Neurology at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Cree completed his MD and PhD in Biochemistry at UCSF. His neurology residency training was at Columbia University. He returned to UCSF for a Sylvia Lawry National Multiple Sclerosis Society fellowship and received a Masters in Advanced Studies in Clinical Research. He is the Clinical Research Director at the UCSF MS Center. He divides his time between patient care, clinical research and teaching. His research focuses on the genetic epidemiology of multiple sclerosis, understanding factors that contribute to disease progression and developing novel therapies for MS through clinical trials. In addition to multiple sclerosis, Dr. Cree specializes in research and care of patients with neuromyelitis optica and transverse myelitis.
