Susan S. Smyth, M.D. Ph.D., is a physician scientist who combines clinical practice in cardiology with NIH- , VA-, and industry-funded research focused on the interplay between inflammation and thrombosis in vascular biology. Her training and expertise center around the contribution of extracellular mediators and blood and vascular cell-surface signaling receptors. Her team applies genetic and pharmacologic strategies in animal models of cardiovascular disease, in order to define cellular and molecular pathways, and then tests those pathways in clinical studies in humans. She has authored nearly 150 publications and contributed to over a dozen textbooks.
