=====================================================================================
David Grahame Grahame-Smith (DGS) was one of the UK's leading clinical pharmacologists. His work on the pharmacology of the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) began with the identification of a key enzyme in its synthesis and continued over the next 35 years through a series of innovative and elegant experiments on its functions and its roles in depression and the tumours that cause the carcinoid syndrome, on the clinical management of which he was an expert.
