Scottish molecular biologist and biophysicist and pioneer in the field of electron microscopy of biological molecules. He is distinguished for his contributions to protein crystallography — a technique that uses X-rays to determine the structure of molecules. Richard was the first to solve the structure of a protein found in the membrane of a cell.

In 2016 he was awarded the Copley Medal of the Royal Society.

He shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 with Jacques Dubochet and Joachim Frank.
