Biography

Prof Smyth is Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at NUI Galway, Director for the HRB Clinical Research Facility Galway and a Consultant Nephrologist at Galway University Hospitals. After graduating with a Bachelors in Medicine from NUI Galway, he trained in Internal Medicine and Nephrology in Ireland, Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN, USA) and McMaster University (Canada). He holds a MSc of Medical Science from NUI Galway and a Structured PhD in Medicine / Clinical Epidemiology from NUI Galway. 

Prof Smyth’s research interests are in the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease, particularly modifiable risk factors for chronic kidney disease and the relationship between diet and health outcomes. He was the first Irish-based recipient of a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Career Development Fellowship and collaborates closely with the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) of McMaster University. He has published over 50 peer-review papers including first author publications in Lancet, Circulation and Kidney International. As part of his role as Director of HRB-CRFG, Prof Smyth is also a Director of Clinical Research Development Ireland, a Senior Management Team Member of HRB Clinical Research Coordination Ireland and an Executive Committee member of the HRB Trials Research Methodology Network.

Prof Smyth is the Director for the MSc in Clinical Research Program in the School of Medicine at NUI Galway and has developed a number of modules in observational research, clinical trials, systematic reviews and meta-analysis and the ethics and regulatory frameworks for clinical research.
