About Dr. Goldfarb

Allan H. Goldfarb received his Ph.D. from Temple University in the area of exercise physiology and completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Medical College of Pennsylvania in pharmacology. He holds the rank of Professor and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Academy of Kinesiology.

He teaches exercise physiology at the undergraduate and graduate level. He also teaches advance exercise physiology courses in the area of muscle physiology, cardiovascular physiology and endocrinology.

Dr. Goldfarb’s specialization is in nutritional aspects with exercise physiology and his current research is focused on understanding the effects of exercise on the production of radical species in relation to physiological function (muscle and cell signaling) and the use of antioxidant supplements.

He has also studied the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism during exercise through hormones and humeral factors. He is the author/coauthor of over 80 publications in the scientific literature and has written 15 published book chapters.
