Yvonne Reid's Biography

Yvonne Reid, Manager/Scientist, American Type Culture Collection

Yvonne Reid received her PhD, Zoology at Howard University, Washington, DC in 1986. She joined ATCC in 1980 and during the mid-1980’s her research focused on the use of DNA hypervariable probes for the intraspecies identification of human cell lines. The evolution of this work has led to the implementation of routine screening of all human cell lines at ATCC and other cell banks. Recently she co-chaired the ATCC Standard Development Organization (SDO) committee on the Development of a Consensus Standard for the Authentication of Human Cell Lines: Standardization of STR profiling. Dr. Reid has more than 30 years of experience in cell biology, immunology and molecular biology. As Collection Scientist for the Cell Biology Program for over 10 years, she was responsible for the accessioning of new animal cell lines and hybridomas into the Cell Biology General Collection. Dr. Reid has authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and has served on more than a dozen scientific committees, including serving as an ad hoc member of the Comparative Medicine Review Committee, National Center for Research Resources (NIH); Chairperson, of ad hoc advisory member for the National Cell Culture Center, Minneapolis, MN and Member of the 2005-2010 USP Fetal Bovine Serum ad hoc Advisory Panel, member of the 2010-2011 USP Cryopreservation ad hoc Advisory Panel. In addition, Dr. Reid has served as principal investigator on six government and nongovernment contracts. She has been invited to speak, convene and/or chair sessions at several cell biology conferences (including the Bioanalysis Thinkshop sponsored by the NIST and IRMM, Geel, Belgium and Faculty member for a cell culture training course sponsored by UNESCO, Beijing, China.)
