Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most frequent inherited disorder affecting peripheral nervous system. Over numerous years, research on CMT were mainly focused on the description of the various clinical presentations of the disease, allowing a classification of the various types of CMT. The last 20 years saw the emergence of translational research on CMT, including the creation of relevant animal models of the disease and the development of therapeutic approaches, leading to the first clinical trials. The purpose of this Special Issue on CMT of IJMS is to collect the most relevant works on CMT. These include new mechanisms involved in pathophysiology of different CMT forms, new animal or cellular models, new biochemical mechanisms opening new tracks, new propositions of therapeutical development. Major requirements for papers submitted to this Special Issue are (i) clear novelty; (ii) opening tracks for future translational research based on molecular research and (iii) a strong rationale background. Papers dealing with minor points concerning already-published research or with clinical data without molecular approaches will be returned without further review.
