Emily M. Schorr MD

Neuroimmunology and Neuroinfectious Disease Fellow, Division of Neuroimmunology and Neurological Infections, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland

Dr. Emily Schorr is a neuroimmunology and neuroinfectious disease fellow at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, USA.  Dr. Schorr obtained her Bachelor of Science from University of Oregon and her Medical Degree from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY, USA in 2017. She completed her neurology residency at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2021.

Dr. Schorr’s primary area of interest is in neuroimmunology of the central nervous system including conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and the impact of neuroinflammation on a wide range of pathologies and outcomes. Currently, she is focusing her clinical and translational research on neuroinflammatory serum biomarkers in MS, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in neuroimmunological disease for diagnosis, monitoring, and prognosis.  Dr. Schorr is interested in how neurovascular health and sex-related factors interact with neuroimmunological conditions, and has prior publications on retinal artery occlusions, and sex-related outcomes in stroke.   She is also interested in how social factors impact demyelinating diseases.  Her other prior publication topics include: psychiatric comorbidities in MS, epidemiology and seizure patterns in autoimmune encephalitis, neuroinfectious management and epidemiology in pediatric patients, auditory cortex white matter tract characteristics in congenitally deaf patients, and inflammatory serum profiles and outcomes in hematologic malignancies after bone marrow transplant.

In addition to the honor of caring for neurology patients in clinic, Dr. Schorr also greatly enjoys teaching. She has spent years on projects working to improve the educational process and quell “neurophobia” particularly in medical students and non-neurology trainees. As a resident, she published and presented data nationally about neurology resident learning patterns.  Currently, she is a co-site director for a novel neurology medical student rotation at Johns Hopkins.
