David Richardson

CPIP faculty affiliate David Richardson has been selected to join a committee assessing how the Manhattan Project affected veteran health. The committee was created by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine to better understand the harm caused by exposures during the U.S. government’s World War II effort to build an atom bomb. Dr. Richardson is a professor of environmental & occupational health and associate dean of research for UCI’s Program in Public Health. As an internationally recognized researcher and expert in occupational health, Richardson is poised to provide integral expertise to the committee’s charge of uncovering the connection between exposures from the Manhattan Project and adverse health outcomes.
