About Bradley W. Richmond, MD, PhD

Dr. Richmond obtained his medical degree from the University of Louisville and completed his clinical training in internal medicine and pulmonary and critical care medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. During his clinical fellowship, he also obtained a Ph.D. in cell and developmental biology from Vanderbilt University. His lab studies the mechanisms through which inhaled irritants cause altered epithelial differentiation and the relevance of altered epithelial differentiation in COPD and other airway diseases. To answer these questions his lab utilizes multiple model systems including analysis of human lung tissue (including single-cell RNA sequencing and multiplexed immunofluorescence and RNA in situ hybridization); multiple transgenic mouse models and in vivo inhalational exposure models; and in vitro systems including murine and human large airway epithelial cells. Dr. Richmond’s research has been supported by the American Lung Association, the National Institutes of Health (K08), and most recently by a VA CDA2 award.
