Dr. Simmonds joined the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) as the System's Institutional Veterinarian in 1988 after a distinguished career in the U.S. Air Force. Over six years of his military career were spent with NASA where he managed the Animal Testing components of the Lunar Quarantine Program and a joint space biology program with the Soviet Union. The last 11 years of his military service were spent at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD where he was the Director of Instructional and Research Support and Associate Professor of Physiology and Surgery. In October 2006, Dick retired from NSHE and was awarded Emeritus rank. He continues to teach at the University of Nevada, Reno in both the Medical School's Physiology Course and in several courses in the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources. Professionally, Dick has been active in local and national veterinary and animal science associations and has served as the National President of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (twice), President of the Nevada Veterinary Medical Association, and is currently a member of the Nevada Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. Dick has been actively involved in science fairs since 1965 and has directed regional fairs in Alaska and California and has been a judge at the Intel ISEF on three occasions.

The Animals in Space exhibit contains information and photos documenting the work of local veterinarian Richard Simmonds, who spent more than six years of his Air Force career managing animal testing components of NASA's lunar quarantine program and a joint space biology program with the Soviet Union.
Simmonds serves on the board of directors of the Sparks High School-based Challenger Learning Center and volunteers at the museum.
Visitors will see a prototype of a "mouse hotel" that Simmonds helped develop to send rodents from Nevada to space to determine whether cosmic rays were harming astronauts.
Simmonds also was involved with a laboratory where moon dust was tested for toxins, and with experiments to send fish into space to see how they would swim in a weightless environment and a spider to see if it would be able to spin a web, Dreiling said.
