Structural Biophysics Laboratory, CCR
National Cancer Institute
United States of America
Dr. Byrd received his Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina in 1977, specializing in high-resolution biomolecular NMR. He was a postdoctoral fellow and subsequently a research officer in the Molecular Biophysics Laboratory of the National Research Council of Canada, where he investigated biological membranes by solid-state NMR. Following a period as a senior investigator at the Center for Drugs and Biologics/FDA, he established the Macromolecular NMR Section of the ABL-Basic Research Program at the NCI-Frederick in 1992. He chaired the Experimental NMR Conference in 1992 and co-chaired the International Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems in 1996. Dr. Byrd has been the Chief of the Structural Biophysics Laboratory in the Center for Cancer Research, NCI since 1999. He has served on multiple drug discovery panels for NCI and served as the Director of the Molecular Discovery Program from 2009-2011.
