Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Smuder's research is focused on elucidating the molecular signaling pathways leading to cardiac and skeletal muscle dysfunction caused by disease (cancer and chemotherapy treatment) and inactivity (spinal cord injury and mechanical ventilation). Ongoing work in her lab seeks to understand the role of increased activity (exercise and electrical stimulation) in regulating muscle proteolysis.
