Clinical Trials

Led by William E. Kraus, MD and Kim Huffman, MD, PhD, the DMPI-CFL Research Group located on the Duke Center for Living campus in Durham, North Carolina has over 20 years of experience conducting clinical trials in humans. With expertise in preventive cardiology, rheumatology, exercise science, nutrition, immune function, energy balance and mobile health technologies, our diverse team of experts studies how the body works with a focus on improving the prevention and treatment of diseases. To support our ongoing research efforts, we are actively recruiting participants for a variety of studies. We are looking for healthy volunteers as well as individuals who may have certain disease conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and arthritis. We invite you to view the flyers on this site for details about our current studies.
