Profile

Richard J. Bloomer earned a Bachelors Degree in Health Promotion with a concentration in Nutritional Science from Buffalo State College and a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology from Ithaca College, after which time he began his role as a member of a clinical research team within the Department of Behavioral Medicine at Duke University Medical Center.  Following the completion of his PhD training at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the area of Exercise Physiology, with supportive training in Nutritional Biochemistry, he served a one year appointment as a Visiting Assistant Professor within the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Wake Forest University, where he worked within the cardiac rehabilitation program.  He is currently Department Chair of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Memphis, where he holds the title of Professor and Director of the Cardiorespiratory/Metabolic Laboratory. 

He has been involved in personal exercise and nutritional consulting for close to 20 years and has trained and consulted with several hundred clients.  He holds certifications from both the American College of Sports Medicine as a Certified Health Fitness Specialist and the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.  He has written close to 60 health and fitness related articles for various on-line and print media targeting non-scientific audiences. 

His research is focused on nutrient and exercise interventions aimed at attenuating oxidative stress—ultimately leading to improved metabolic and cardiovascular health.  Much of this research involves dietary manipulation and the use of selected nutraceuticals and dietary supplements in an attempt to improve various biomarkers of human health and performance.  Specific to this area of investigation, he has received close to $2 million to support his research work.  He has acted as consultant to numerous dietary supplement and dietary ingredient companies.  He has authored or co-authored close to 70 peer- reviewed scientific presentations at national and international meetings.  He has also been the invited guest on several radio programs nationwide to discuss his research.  He is lead or co-author on well over 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and book chapters in the areas of oxidative stress, dietary intake, nutraceuticals, and exercise.  He has been investigating the health-related effects of the Daniel Fast since 2009 and is co-author of The Daniel Cure: The Daniel Fast Way to Vibrant Health (Zondervan, 2013).
