Dr. Richman has extensive research experience that spans the range from neuroscience to cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. He has worked in the drug discovery arena for over a decade and is passionate about helping people live happier and healthier lives. Dr. Richman is dedicated to reaching out to and educating youth and believes our future relies on their imaginations. This is manifest in his teaching martial arts, biology, neuroscience, and rock climbing to children and teens for the past 30 years. Most importantly, he believes it is critical to empower youth to advocate for themselves and their peers when it comes to brain health and brain illness. Toward this end, Dr. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, started the Avielle Foundation, committed to preventing violence and building compassion through brain health research, community engagement, and education.
