Student Bio: 
Kyle is a California native and grew up in the Central Valley in Clovis. He graduated from UCLA in 2006 with a degree in microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics. He then began his DDS/PhD training at UCSF in 2006 and graduated from dental school in 2010. Since graduation, Kyle has been working in Ophir Klein’s lab. His research focuses on the identification and organization of adult oral epithelial stem cells in mice using transgenic mouse models. He hopes to someday understand the role that these stem cells may play in certain oral diseases, such as oral cancer. Kyle is also currently in his final year of residency training in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. In his spare time, Kyle enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, hiking, and enjoying the many amazing sights that the Bay Area has to offer.
