Kenmore, Wash.-based Bastyr University Research Institute has appointed a new associate director, Ryan Bradley, and he will relocate to the natural health university’s San Diego campus.

Bradley brings experience from the diabetic and cardiovascular naturopathic center he ran in Seattle, the university said in a release.

“I am excited about the new opportunities my transition to California will create for Bastyr University,” Bradley said. “My goals in San Diego are to build research collaborations, re-create my successful Diabetes and Cardiovascular Wellness Clinic and educate students and other health care providers on naturopathic clinical care and research.”

Founded in 1978, the nonprofit, private university offers both graduate and undergraduate degrees, with a multidisciplinary curriculum in science-based natural medicine.
