Richard Kones MD began as a mathematically inclined chemical engineer, and then attended NYU School of Medicine in a special pilot program. Inspired by a mentor in the Physiology department, he conducted independent research studying aldosterone with a novel technique, and became a full member of the New York Academy of Sciences while still in medical school. He completed training in New York and continued a NIH Fellowship in cardiology at Tulane University School of Medicine, also working at the Charity Hospital and Veterans Administration Hospital in New Orleans. He returned to New York Medical College to continue researching actions of inotropic agents, myocardial function, preservation of ischemic myocardium, and cardiogenic shock, eventually relocating in Texas. An avid supporter of applications of biochemistry and physiology, he continued teaching and publishing, emphasizing translational research. In addition to presentations, lectures, has mentored medical students and house staff at several medical schools and affiliated hospitals. His interests gradually turned to the role pathological signaling plays in the pathogenesis of atherothrombosis, especially the interaction of inflammatory mechanisms, endothelial dysfunction, mitochondrial involvement in disease, lipid metabolism, metabolic syndrome and related evidence-based interventions to improve clinical outcomes. Fundamental mechanisms and molecular and cellular cardiology have been central to his work, as well as the practical aspects of how simple lifestyle and dietary changes may be powerful tools to minimize risk factors. During the course of his academic career he has received several scholarships, awards, and grants. His work includes publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, books, presentations, and lectures. He serves on a number of committees in various medical organizations, peer reviews for over eighty medical journals, and volunteers for the mentoring programs in the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and American Heart Association.
