Dr. Richard Miron, BMSC, MSc, PhD, DDS, is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Periodontology at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He completed his undergraduate degree in Medical Science and a Masters in Cell Biology at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Bern, Switzerland and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Laval, Canada. He has previously performed numerous short stay post-doctoral research fellowships at the University of Wuhan in China in 2011, 2012 and 2014 and has since co-supervised numerous Master and PhD candidates as an external visiting scholar. His main research interests involve enamel matrix proteins for bone and periodontal regeneration, bioactive growth factors, osteoinductive bone grafting materials and guided bone regeneration in implant dentistry. He has recently been awarded many internationally recognized top young investigators awards including the Andre Schroeder Research Prize from the International Team of Implantology (ITI) (2016), the Robert Frank Award for Basic Research in Dentistry (2015), the International Association of Dental Research (IADR) Young investigator of the Year in the field of Implant Dentistry (2015), the Canadian IADR Hatton Award recipient (2015), and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Young Investigator Grant Award (2014).

The Miron research group focuses on tissue regeneration of both soft and hard tissues found in the intra-oral cavity. Tissue engineering strategies include the regeneration of bone, periodontal ligament, gingiva and cementum by means of bioactive growth factors, bone grafting materials, soft tissue regenerative agents, platelet concentrates, novel barrier membranes and dental implants. The scope of these investigations ranges from in vitro molecular biology to pre-clinical animal studies up to human clinical trials.
