At the national level, she serves as chair of the American Thoracic Society’s Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology Planning Committee and is a permanent member of the NIH Lung Injury, Repair and Remodeling Study Section.

Sime earned her medical degree with honors from the University of Edinburgh Medical School, Scotland. She completed training at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the University of Edinburgh.
