Paul Richardson grew up in Bath, Maine and graduated from Morse High School in 1992. He graduated in 1996 with a B.S. in Biochemistry from Lebanon Valley College. After college he worked for Bayer pharmaceuticals testing over the counter drugs (Aspirin, Midol, ect...), after which he went to the University of Southern Maine and got a M.S. in Medical Immunology and Molecular Biology in 1999, his thesis focused on apoptotic factors in murine herpesvirus. For this thesis work he was awarded the outstanding graduate student for the University of Southern Maine. In 1999 he met his wife, Nicole Marie Richardson while attending the University of Alabama, Birmingham PhD program in biochemistry. In 2003 he followed his mentor to Georgia Tech and got married. In 2004 Paul finished his PhD thesis (PhD in biochemistry from UAB) that focused on structural modeling of proteins involved in diseases. In 2004 he took an assistant professor position at Coastal Carolina University. In 2006 Paul and Nicole had their oldest daughter Caroline Evelyn Richardson, who is an aspiring dancer and singer. In 2009 they had Ella Grace Richardson, a red headed fireball that gets into all kinds of trouble. In 2009 he was awarded the outstanding researcher in Applied Medical Sciences. In 2010 he got promoted to associate professor of biochemistry and in 2012 he was awarded the Harry M. Lightsey Jr. Visiting Scholar. In 2016 he was promoted to Professor of Biochemistry. Currently he is the program coordinator for the CCU INBRE grant, focusing on biomedical research at the university. In his spare time he likes to fish off the Myrtle Beach state park pier, exercise, and is an avid movie watcher.
