Michael Richardson is a British citizen who carries out research in developmental biology. He was appointed in 2000 to the van der Leeuw chair of evolutionary developmental biology at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. His active research focus is: fundamental developmental biology (the evolutionary developmental biology of vertebrates, mainly reptiles and fish); and applied developmental biology (zebrafish embryos as models for compound screening). These two areas synergise in his future plans to use zebrafish embryos as screening models to study the evolutionary developmental biology of the snake venom delivery system.

More information about Michael Richardson

Michael Richardson is a British citizen who carries out research in developmental biology. He gained his bachelors degree in cell pathology at University College London (UCL) where he was also awarded his Ph.D. in developmental biology in 1990 with Lewis Wolpert. He then worked in the embryonic stem-cell lab of Maya Sieber-Blum lab in the USA, before returning to London to study hox gene function in recombinant limbs. After teaching developmental biology at St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London, he was appointed in 2000 to the van der Leeuw chair of evolutionary developmental biology at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. His active research focus is: fundamental developmental biology (the evolutionary developmental biology of vertebrates, mainly reptiles and fish); and applied developmental biology (zebrafish embryos as models for compound screening).
