Dr. NeSmith is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physiological and Technological Nursing at Georgia Regents University and has nearly 25 years of experience in trauma, emergency, and disaster care. Having obtained her Doctor of Philosophy degree with a focus on translational and interdisciplinary research, Dr. NeSmith’s federally-funded grants focus on the effects of lifetime chronic stress on the physiologic response to polytrauma and how it impacts healing and vulnerability to poor outcomes of acute life-threatening injury. Dr. NeSmith’s research will lead to advances in tailoring individual treatments to prevent and improve injury outcomes. Dr. NeSmith is also board-certified as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and applies these skills to research-focused role implementation in collaboration with her clinical scientist partners within the Level 1 trauma center at her institution. Along with her research team, Dr. NeSmith has multiple trauma-related publications and nationally-presented abstracts, and co-founded the Trauma Interdisciplinary Group for Research.
