Academic Office Information

Dr. Richardson joined the University of Utah in 2007 with joint appointments in the Department of Internal Medicine - Division of Geriatrics, and the Department of Exercise and Sport Science. He became a tenured professor in each department in 2010. Dr. Richardson directs the Utah Vascular Research Laboratory (UVRL) located at the Salt Lake VA Medical Center. He has had a long standing interest in oxygen transport from air to tissue, with a current research interest revolving around the link between vascular and skeletal muscle function. One of the many potential candidates, upon which we are focusing considerable attention, is the role of oxidative stress in the regulation/dysregulation of skeletal muscle metabolism and vascular control.
