Kim M. Huffman, MD, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology and a staff physician at the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Huffman's research interests are at the intersection of aging, inflammation, metabolism, skeletal muscle, and physical activity. An ultimate goal is to develop evidenced-based exercise interventions for persons with rheumatologic disease, specifically osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, her research aims to improve understanding of the many molecular, inflammatory, and metabolic changes within skeletal muscle that occur with both aging and disease, and how physical activity might be used best to counteract these changes.
