Dr David Robert Broom

Reader of Physical Activity and Health


Summary

David is a Reader in Physical Activity and Health.

He has a broad interest in the benefits of physical activity on health but has examined the effects of exercise on appetite and appetite related hormones and has been involved in the development, monitoring and evaluation of physical activity and weight management interventions.

He is elected Chair of BASES Division of Physical Activity for Health and an Associate Editor of BMC Obesity. He is an appointed member of the Chief Medical Officers Adult Expert Working Group tasked with updating the UK's physical activity guidelines and is therefore influencing national government policy.

About

David is a Reader of Physical Activity and Health. His research interests are the effects of physical activity and nutritional interventions on energy balance in the prevention and treatment of excess weight and obesity.

His expertise is the study of exercise on appetite and appetite related hormones having published numerous peer reviewed articles in high impact factor journals, two of which have amassed over 150 citations each. His most recent first author exercise and appetite related paper was the Journal of Endocrinology's top most downloaded non-gold open access article for 2017. He has contributed to two British Association of Sport and Exercise Science's (BASES) expert statements on this topic.

He has evaluated health service provision including physical activity referral and has developed, monitored and evaluated physical activity and weight management interventions for local authorities. He has demonstrated success with winning and delivering bids and his income generation profile is burgeoning.

He has taught on the exercise prescription and physiology related modules of the Sport and Exercise Science and Physical Activity related degrees since 2007. He previously course led BSc (Hons) Physical Activity, Health and Exercise Science where it was his responsibility to work with academic and support colleagues to ensure its successful organisation and operation leading to excellent student experience.

He is an appointed Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and is passionate about delivering excellent learning and teaching experiences and providing opportunities for the sport and exercise scientists and practitioners of the future. This has been recognised through receiving two inspirational teaching awards.

David supervises PhD students and has examined twelve at multiple UK and international Universities. He has presented at many national and international conferences including invited keynotes. He is an Associate Editor of BMC Obesity and Advisory Editor for the journals Appetite and the Journal of Sports Sciences.

He is elected Chair of BASES Division of Physical Activity for Health, appointed Fellow and member of the Scientific Conference Organising committee. He is an appointed member of the Chief Medical Officers Adult Expert Working Group tasked with updating the UK's physical activity guidelines and is therefore influencing national government policy.
