Timothy Griffin, PhD, is an Associate Member in the Aging and Metabolism Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF). He is also a Research Biologist at the Oklahoma City Veterans Administration, and he holds several Adjunct Associate Professor positions at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Dr. Griffin’s research focuses on understanding how obesity and aging increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis, which is the primary cause of disability and joint pain in older adults. His work with pre-clinical animal models has revealed how metabolic and inflammatory processes regulate joint tissue remodeling and stress resistance. Dr. Griffin is an Associate Editor of Osteoarthritis and Cartilage and the Osteoarthritis Co-Section Editor of Current Rheumatology Reports.
