Dr. Richard Huemer is an alumnus of Pomona College (1954) and UCLA School of Medicine (1958). Although retired from clinical medicine, he maintains an MD license in California and an MD(H) (homeopathic) license in Arizona.

He has also been involved in biomedical consulting, and have taught college-level genetics.
Dr. Huemer has served as president of the Orthomolecular Medical Society, the Culver City Toastmasters Club, and the LA chapter of the Committee of Responsibility for War-Injured Children. He has published papers in several fields: immunology, experimental gerontology, molecular disease, nutrition, and theory of diagnosis. He was co-author or co-editor of several books, and editor of the compilation, The Roots of Molecular Medicine (Freeman, NY, 1986). He has served on the editorial boards of several journals, most notably Mechanisms of Ageing and Development (1982-99) and Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine (current).
Dr. Huemer is interested in furthering the advance of personalized and precision medicine, to supersede the prevailing outmoded paradigms of disease, health, fiscal responsibility and control of health care.
