Biography

David Pitt, MD, is a neurologist specializing in multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neuro-inflammatory diseases at Yale Medicine.

Dr. Pitt spends the majority of his time as a researcher, investigating the causes of neurodegeneration in MS. He is also working on a new imaging method to make inflammation visible in the brain so that doctors can adjust the way they treat MS at different stages of the disease. His research into the biological mechanisms behind MS informs his work as a physician.

When seeing patients, Dr. Pitt values taking the time to educate them about the nature of MS and how the scientific knowledge and treatments of the condition have substantially improved over the years. “The reputation of MS as a terrible disease lags behind how well we can treat it nowadays,” he says.

“I find it important to explain to newly diagnosed patients what it really means to have multiples sclerosis and how this might be different from their conception of what it is.”

In addition to treating patients and conducting research, Dr. Pitt is an associate professor of Neurology at the Yale School of Medicine.
