Kevin Matthew Byrd is currently the Anthony R. Volpe Research Scholar and Manager of Oral & Craniofacial Research at ADA Science & Research Institute (ADASRI). He is a clinician-scientist who completed his D.D.S. at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2013 and Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 2018. Byrd has received numerous research honors and held various professional affiliations and memberships. Byrd’s research has focused on understanding oral stem cell heterogeneity and how their regulation contributes to wound healing and head and neck cancers. He has expanded his scope recently through active collaborations across the world to apply advanced technologies to catalog the oral and oropharyngeal tissues at single cell resolution, leading to his appointment as the Coordinator for the new Human Cell Atlas Oral & Craniofacial Biological Network. Byrd’s research has been supported by industry, foundations, and the NIH. At ADASRI, he leads the Lab of Oral & Craniofacial Innovation (LOCI) and will 1) continue to explore oral epithelial stem cell regulation and heterogeneity, 2) study the mechanisms of oral inflammation in pediatric inflammatory diseases, and 3) lead the creation of the Human Cell Atlas for categorizing the unique and undiscovered cell types in oral and craniofacial tissue across the lifespan.

"One role that associations can play is to give underrepresented minority/ethnic groups a strong voice and a platform for support and recognition. Professional associations must identify their needs, challenges and provide opportunities and the ability for recognition and growth. If the needs and challenges are not recognized then no opportunities can be provided."
