Kevin McBryde, M.D.

Program Director, Office of Minority Health Research Coordination

Current Responsibilities and Activities

I am a program director in the OMHRC.  The OMHRC addresses diseases and disorders that disproportionately impact the health of minority populations and fosters the recruitment and training of minority biomedical investigators, who are currently in short supply.

In the role of contracting officer technical representative, I provide technical and clinical expertise in support of the contracting officer for contracts.  In the role of program director, I am responsible for overseeing several research awards and supplements.  These include:  the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral Fellowships to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (F31); NIDDK Small Grants for New Investigators to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (R03); Professional Society Programs to Promote Diversity (R25); Promoting Organ and Tissue Donation Among Diverse Populations (R01); Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research; and Research Supplements to Promote Re-Entry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers.

My work supports the diversification and strengthening of the nation’s biomedical research workforce.  This biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research not only contributes to the reduction and eventual elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities, but also advances overall scientific knowledge and improves public health.
