Garry R Cutting


Dr. Garry R. Cutting is a professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is the Aetna/U.S. Healthcare Professor of Medical Genetics at Johns Hopkins and is also a faculty member of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine. His areas of clinical expertise include cystic fibrosis and medical genetics. Dr. Cutting’s primary research interest is in the molecular genetics of cystic fibrosis and, more recently, elucidating modifier genes underlying variation in the severity of cystic fibrosis. He is also the director of the CFTR2 project, a worldwide collection of genotype and phenotype data on over 40,000 patients with cystic fibrosis. After receiving his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Connecticut, Dr. Cutting earned his medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He completed his residency training in pediatrics and a fellowship in medical genetics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and has remained at Johns Hopkins for his entire professional career. Dr. Cutting is the recipient of the Paul di Sant’Agnese Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and a MERIT award from the National Institutes of Health. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed articles. He is director of the postdoctoral clinical genetics fellowship programs, the DNA Diagnostic Laboratory and the Genetic Translational Technology Core at Johns Hopkins. In April 2017 Dr. Cutting was elected to the Association of American Physicians.
