Gerard Smith (born 1960) is a

professor at the University of Exeter and

director of its Living Systems Institute. He is notable for his pioneering work

on the biology of embryonic stem cells. Austin Smith obtained his doctoral

degree from the University of Edinburgh in

1986. He then carried out postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford,

before joining the Centre for Genome Research at the University of Edinburgh as

a group leader. In 1996, he was appointed director of the Centre, which

became the Institute for Stem Cell Research under his leadership. He

remained as director of the Institute until his move to Cambridge in 2006. Here,

he became a director of the Welcome Trust Centre for Stem Cell Research  and

later was the director of the new Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell

Institute at the University of Cambridge,

which was established with 8 million pounds ($12.5 million) awarded by

the Wellcome Trust and Medical Research Council (UK) in

Medicine along with French cardiologist Michel Haissaguerre.

In February 2010, together with 13 other leading stem cell researchers,

he wrote an open letter to journal editors to voice the opinion that

obstructive reviews by a small number of researchers in the field were

hindering publication of novel stem cell research.
