Post-Doctoral Fellows


Sean McBride, MD, PhDSean McBride, MD, PhD

Prior to joining the TNP, Sean made important discoveries related therapeutic candidates for rare genetic disorders such as Fragile X syndrome.  His work as a PhD student and Resident in Psychiatry laid much of the critical pathway for current clinical studies pursuing mGluR5 antagonists for a variety of conditions related to autism spectrum disorders.  His work as a Fellow in the TNP is supported by a Behavioral Pharmacology T32 (Irwin Lucki, Ph.D., P.I.) and focuses on mouse and fly (in collaboration with Thomas Jongens, Ph.D.) models of Fragile X and other developmental disorders.  Addtionally, he continues to treat patients in both the Developmental Disorders Clinic and Penn Memory Center.
