Erik A. Richter, MD, DMSci, is professor of Human Physiology and Exercise Physiology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He has a strong focus on human experimental physiology related to molecular signalling involved in regulation of fuel metabolism during and after exercise. Having made the original discovery that a single bout of exercise increases insulin sensitivity, he also examines the molecular basis for this phenomenon including the role of the microcirculation. His experimental expertise allows performance of invasive human studies while also performing research in genetically altered rodents and cells. He has published 300 papers accruing >15,000 citations. His H-index is 74 (Web of knowledge).
