Tom Smith is a professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. His research interests range from musculoskeletal adaptation and injury, to Electric Stimulation Therapy, and the study of neuromuscular agents. In collaboration with the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, he is currently researching the use of tissue engineered constructs for repair of peripheral nerve gaps following injury, tissue engineered allografts for ACL, tendon and meniscus repairs, and murine models of myocardial infarction to test stem cell therapies utilizing coronary artery ligations performed as survival surgeries in mice.
