Sinclair A. Smith, Sc.D. received his BS in Biology and MS in Exercise Physiology from Virginia Tech and his Doctorate of Science is in Applied Anatomy and Physiology from Boston University in 1999. His dissertation research examined the effects of aging, dehydration, and oral creatine supplementation on skeletal muscle metabolism using phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy. While a graduate student in Boston, Dr. Smith worked as a research assistant at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts. 

Before coming to Drexel University in 2005, Dr. Smith was an Assistant Professor at Temple University in Philadelphia. At Drexel he teaches courses in anatomy, physiology, and exercise science. His primary research interest involves the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and near infrared spectroscopy to non-invasively study neuromuscular metabolism in humans.
