Alex Richmond

Executive Director

Alex Richmond brings a strong background in political science to his role as Executive Director of CNS Foundation and as an advocate for regenerative medicine focused on pediatric conditions. After graduating from Marymount Manhattan College in 2007, Alex was involved in a Presidential campaign, a LA County City race, an Independent Congressional campaign, and a voter guide that encouraged young people to participate in local politics.

Influenced by his brother, Palmer, who remains undiagnosed, Alex continuously educates himself on neuroscience relevant to the pediatric community and engages at the state level, both in California and across the country, as well as the Federal level whereever stem cell legislation will be considered.
