Anthony Rosner became Research Director at Apex Energetics, Inc., in July 2013 and is responsible for articulating the mechanisms and clinical research supporting numerous nutritional supplements. He had served as Research Director of the International College of Applied Kinesiology from 2009-2013 and was responsible for the development of research literature in that field through the design of basic and clinical research, mentoring of researchers in their efforts to publish in the peer-reviewed journals, and acquisition of research funding. In assessing the strengths and weaknesses in applied kinesiology research, he was able to initiate numerous research projects and attract grant funding with the hope of buttressing the ultimate goal of including applied kinesiology in the annals of evidence-based medicine.
From 1992-2007, he had been a Director of Research and Education at the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research and Director of Research Initiatives at the Parker College of Chiropractic from 2007-2009. In these capacities he directed and facilitated research that resulted in hundreds of peer-reviewed articles as well numerous papers of his own. He directed all phases of over 120 clinical and basic research projects worldwide, leveraging over $25M in federal funding where previously there had been none. During this period, he had frequent appearances before state legislatures, the Institute of Medicine, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, state licensing boards, and numerous third party payors as an exponent of critical research appraisal.
After obtaining his Ph.D. in Medical Sciences at Harvard in 1972 and conducting postdoctoral research at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda and at the Centre Nationale de la Rechereche Scientifique in Gif-sur-Yvette, France, in 1973 and 1974, he directed research and clinical chemistry laboratories at Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital and at an affiliate of the Mayo Clinic. He then taught chemistry and served as Department Administrator in Chemistry at Brandeis University and managed research operations in neonatology at Children’s Hospital in Boston until he joined the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research in 1992. His publication record of over 85 papers includes such diverse fields as bacterial physiology, enzyme regulation, hormone-receptor interactions, tumor cell biology, and clinical research design.
His awards include Humanitarian of the Year 2000 from the American Chiropractic Association, the George Goodheart Memorial Award from the ICAK-USA in 2012, and an honorary degree from the National University of Health Sciences in 2002.
