Biographical statement

Dr. Smyth has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of vascular biology. Her broad training in hematology and cardiovascular disease allowed her to define vital interactions among platelets, leukocytes, endothelial cells, and vascular smooth muscle cells. Her molecular studies of cell signaling and the inflammatory lipid regulator lysophosphatidic acid have provided molecular insights with important therapeutic implications.
