The Terry K. Smith laboratory has four main areas of research:

  • biosynthesis and uptake of phospholipids in protozoan parasites
  • the enzymology of glycosyltransferases and other biosynthetic enzymes
  • the structure, function and biosynthesis of parasite glycoconjugates
  • glycosylphosphatidylinositol membrane anchors of eukaryotic cells
