Dr. Smart is an outstanding resident with interests in clinical research that he plans to solidify and expand through the Fogarty Fellowship. A short-term research experience in 2011 at Weill Bugando in Tanzania left Dr. Smart wanting a more in depth experience to build on his existing research skills and his interests in hypertension and chronic kidney disease. Dr. Smart has put together a team of experienced and enthusiastic mentors including Dr. Robert Peck who is based in Tanzania. These mentors will guide Dr Smart during this fellowship and as he begins his career as a physician scientist.
