May 2021 – Kevin Byrd

0 83

Kevin Matthew Byrd is 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 his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2018. Byrd’s research has focused on understanding oral stem cell heterogeneity and how their regulation contributes to wound healing and head and neck cancers. Recently, he has expanded his scope 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. His research has been supported by industry, foundations and the NIH. At ADASRI, he leads the Lab of Oral & Craniofacial Innovation (LOCI) which  explores: 1) oral epithelial stem cell regulation and heterogeneity, 2) the role of the oral cavity in systemic disease and 3) contributing to the human cell atlas for categorizing the unique and undiscovered cell types in oral and craniofacial tissues.

"It is extremely important to increase the awareness that there are strong opportunities for underrepresented minorities in the field. Disseminating information is probably not enough, but we must actively recruit students or trainees to our field, to maintain the diversity of the research workforce."

Sources of SARS-CoV-2 and Other Microorganisms in Dental Aerosols

0 3488

Alexandria, Va., USA — COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic in March 2020 and given an incomplete understanding of the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 at that time, the American Dental Association recommended that dental offices refrain from providing non-emergency services. As a result, 198,000 dentists in the United States closed their doors to patients. The study “Sources of SARS-CoV-2 and Other Microorganisms in Dental Aerosols,” published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), sought to inform infection-control science by identifying the source of bacteria and viruses in aerosol generating dental procedures.

Ventilation Assessment by Carbon Dioxide Levels in Dental Treatment Rooms

0 953

Alexandria, Va., USA — Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a byproduct of human metabolism and exists in high levels in exhaled air, and is therefore often used as a proxy for indoor air quality. The study “Ventilation Assessment by Carbon Dioxide Levels in Dental Treatment Rooms,” published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), evaluated CO2 levels in dental operatories and determined the accuracy of using CO2 levels to assess ventilation rate in dental clinics.
