Research Summary

Dr. Smith's research interests include branchio-oto-renal (BOR) syndrome and complement-mediated glomerular diseases with a focus on membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type II (MPGN II). The Clinical Diagnostics Division of his laboratory offers mutation screening of EYA1 in persons with a BOR phenotype and Factor H screening in persons with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome or biopsy proven MPGN II.
