About Me

Dr. Smith's clinical interests include neuromuscular, neuroautonomic, and neuroimmunologic diseases. His research focus is on understanding immune-mediated damage in primary autoimmune, neurodegenerative, and neuroinfectious diseases. He is board certified in neurology, neuromuscular medicine, electrodiagnostic medicine and autonomic medicine. He has been a researcher in 30 clinical trials, author of over 80 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and recipient of both regional and national teaching awards.

Dr. Smith completed his clinical and research training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and served as a faculty member there for more than a decade. During that time, he worked as a senior member of the basic and clinical ALS research team. He also served as interim chief of Neurology at Ben Taub General Hospital, and helped to direct several neurology and neuromuscular disease teaching clinics for Baylor and the Harris County Hospital District.

On moving to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Dr. Smith became vice chair of the Department of Neurology in 2004, and helped enlarge the clinical and teaching missions of that institution. He later served as interim chair of the Neurology Department, and in that position, he brought together a new faculty, organized that faculty into a much larger clinical mission, and oversaw the creation of the UTMB Stroke Center and Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. As residency director for UTMB Neurology, he expanded the training program, linked that program with MD Anderson Cancer Center's Neuro-oncology Section, and helped it grow to its current internationally recognized status.
