Anne-Marie Malfait, M.D. Ph.D., is Professor of Internal Medicine and The George W. Stuppy, M.D., Chair of Arthritis at Rush University in Chicago IL. Anne-Marie received her M.D. degree in 1989 and her Ph.D. in 1994, both from Ghent University in Belgium. Her early research training focused on cartilage metabolism in osteoarthritis. Her postdoctoral training at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology in London focused on the role of cytokines in inflammatory arthritis. In 2001, she joined the pharmaceutical industry, joining a team for the development of disease-modifying osteoarthritis drugs (DMOADs). In 2009, Anne-Marie was recruited to Rush University, and established a research group studying pain in osteoarthritis, using animal models. Her group studies the relationship between joint damage and the neurobiological processes that underlie OA pain, with the long-term goal to develop more efficacious and safer analgesics and DMOADs. Anne-Marie is an Associate Editor for Osteoarthritis and Cartilage and for Arthritis and Rheumatology.
