We’ve assembled one of the leading teams of MS specialists in the world right here at the RMMSC @ CU.

Each of our neurologists spends time treating patients, conducting research in their particular interest areas, and teaching the next generation of MS specialty physicians at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Rocky Mountain MS Center at CU Clinical Staff

Medical Director

Dr. John Corboy

Medical Director of the RMMS, Director of the RMMSC @ CU, Professor and Director of Faculty Affairs of the CU School of Medicine, Department of Neurology

Dr. Corboy is a graduate of University of Pennsylvania and did his neurology residency there, with a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He specialized in MS and neurovirology at the University of Minnesota Medical Center before coming to Colorado in 1994. In 1997, he founded the University of Colorado Multiple Sclerosis Center, now transformed into the Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis Center at University of Colorado, a multidisciplinary group offering state-of-the-art care and research to multiple sclerosis patients. Dr. Corboy is Co-Director of the RMMSC at CU, and also the founding editor of Neurology: Clinical Practice, the clinical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Dr. Corboy’s research interests and projects include novel therapeutics for MS, treatment decisions in MS care, understanding how long to use conventional DMT’s, and defining risk factors for development of MS. He is the director of the RMMSC Tissue Bank, which delivers autopsied brain and other tissues to researchers throughout the world. He served on the board of the Colorado-Wyoming chapter of the National MS Society for more than a decade.”]

Neurologist

Dr. Enrique Alvarez

Vice Chair of Clinical Research and Assistant Professor at the CU School of Medicine, Department of Neurology

Dr. Alvarez is a graduate of the Medical Scientist Training program at the University of Colorado Denver and completed his neurology residency and neuroimmunology fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. He brings varied experience in MS and other neurological disorders to the Rocky Mountain MS Center at University of Colorado. He has a special interest in using biomarkers to customize treatments and patient care. He moved to the Denver area with his wife and two children. Most of his free time is spent with his family and his golden retriever, Daisy.
Dr. Alvarez’s research interests and projects include retrospective chart reviews, examining how patients have done in clinic outside of clinical trials to better understand how patients have done with their various treatments. He is also expanding the biorepository of cerebrospinal fluid and blood markers in order undertake biomarker studies. These biomarkers, which can also include MRI measures, will hopefully allow us to decide on the right treatment for each patient that will maximize their health with minimal risk.
Dr. Alvarez also provides regular MS specialty care to patients at Denver Health.
Neurologist & Ophthalmologist

Dr. Jeffrey Bennett

Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology at the CU School of Medicine, Department of Neurology

Dr. Bennett received his Biochemistry and Philosophy Degrees at Case Western Reserve University. He then received his medical and doctoral degrees at Stanford University. Dr. Bennett directs research programs on optic neuritis, demyelinating disorders, and ocular inflammatory diseases. He also maintains active specialty practices in neuro-ophthalmology, multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, and neuroimmunology.
As a clinician-scientist, Dr. Bennett is devoted to understanding the effects of autoimmune demyelination on the nervous system and using this knowledge to transform the care of affected individuals. In the clinic, Dr. Bennett directs clinical trials on new therapies for optic neuritis and neuromyelitis optica. In the laboratory, Dr. Bennett is working to identify the targets of the immune response in neuromyelitis optica and multiple sclerosis and is working to understand the mechanisms by which these disorders cause damage to the nervous system. His laboratory uses multiple experimental methods to evaluate the targets and action of antibodies derived from immune cells in the spinal fluid of neuromyelitis optica and multiple sclerosis patients, and employs state-of-the art techniques to establish the role of these antibodies in causing disease. Through his work, he has developed a novel antigen-specific therapy for neuromyelitis optica and is working towards similar goals in multiple sclerosis.
Neurologist

Dr. Robert Gross

Assistant Professor at the CU School of Medicine, Associate Program Director of Neuroimmunology/MS Fellowship

Dr. Robert Gross attended college at Columbia University and medical school at NYU School of Medicine. He completed Internship in Internal Medicine and Residency in Adult Neurology at Brown University in Providence. He then returned to New York to complete a fellowship in Multiple Sclerosis/Neuroimmunology at the CGD Center for MS at Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Gross sees patients with MS and related disorders of the central nervous system. He divides his time between patient care, teaching, and clinical research. Research interests include the identification of biomarkers associated with treatment response in MS and the establishment of prospective databases to aid in prognostication. He recently moved to Colorado with his wife and beagle/terrier puppy and is thrilled to be living out West for the first time.
Neurologist

Dr. Ryan Kammeyer

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology, CU School of Medicine

Dr. Kammeyer completed medical school at the Indiana University School of Medicine, and has worked as a child neurology resident until 2019 at Children’s Hospital Colorado at the University of Colorado. He has been involved in the CATCH community health program and in the Global Neurology program at CHCO. He is excited to focus on multiple sclerosis and other neuroimmune diseases over the next year, and to potentially get a haircut. His wife, his son, and he enjoy traveling and hiking new parts of Colorado, and building new play areas that their son rarely chooses to use.
Nurse Practitioner

Constance (Connie) McMenamin

Nurse Practitioner at the Rocky Mountain MS Center at University of Colorado

Connie received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh in 1983, and her Master Science Nursing / Family Nurse Practitioner from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2002. In her years as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner, she has worked in a variety of settings including several years at Children’s Hospital Colorado and several years in Family Practice in rural Nevada. Connie’s patient-centered approach involves creating shared goals and working to reach those goals through education, physical activity and symptom management.
Registered Nurse

Rachel Musenero, RN
