Professor Richardson has biomedical engineering research interests with five main themes: adhesion, aggregation and disintegration of cells and cell groups, with applications in thrombosis and hemostasis; artificial organs, especially those designed for transport purposes such as artificial lungs and hybrid artificial pancreases; applications of ultrasound in detection and diagnosis, including intravascular usage, and corresponding image analysis; interaction of flow and blood vessel walls, especially for problems associated with atherosclerosis; design of devices and instruments with biomedical applications (where his research has led to patents).
Professor Richardson was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1986, and was awarded the Jung Prize in Medicine in 1987. He was a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Prize in 1976. He is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute for medical and Biological Engineering, A Fellow of the City & Guilds of London Institute, and of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Inaugural Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society, Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (London),Member of the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs, American Society for Engineering Education, Honorary Member of the British Atherosclerosis Society, and other professional societies. He has authored a book (with M. Steiner) entitled, "Principles of Cell Adhesion" (CRC Press, 1995). An alumnus of the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine of the University of London, he was appointed Professor of Engineering and Physiology in 1984.
