Researcher | Research Overview
Paul Schmidt's work seeks to understand the underlying pathophysiology of hereditary hemochromatosis, sideroblastic anemia and dysregulated iron metabolism through the use of multiple model systems. More recently he has sought to investigate the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) in modifying the erythroid proteome during terminal erythropoiesis
Researcher | Research Background
Paul Schmidt earned his PhD in Environmental Health Sciences in the Biochemical/Molecular Toxicology track at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health in 2001. There he studied the role of copper protein chaperones in a yeast model system. He completed post-doctoral research fellowships in the laboratories of Dr. Nancy Andrews and Dr. Mark Fleming at Boston Children's Hospital employing cell culture and rodent models to study various human iron metabolism diseases.
