The SME Directory is categorized by topic and is available to members of the Washington University research community. Use this directory to quickly get an answer from a peer about a subject you might not deal with very often.If you would like to be added to or removed from the SME Directory, please contact Cynthia McKenna: 314-747-2941, star@wustl.edu.
