Dr. John P. Richie

Dr. Richie is Professor of Public Health Sciences and Pharmacology at Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey, PA.  For the past 30 years, his research goal has been to understand the link between the biological aging process and the development of aging-related diseases and disorders including cancer.  Using an interdisciplinary research approach, he focuses on the role of oxidative stress, generated both endogenously and from environmental exposures, as a mechanism for enhanced susceptibility during aging.  His research has also investigates the impact of both endogenous and dietary antioxidants in protection against oxidative stress and its resulting damage, with the ultimate goal of designing and developing targeted prevention strategies.

Dr. Richie received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Louisville in 1985.  Prior to joining Penn State College of Medicine, he developed and led a Program on Cancer Susceptibility and Aging at the American Health Foundation (Institute for Cancer Prevention) in Valhalla, NY.
