Welcome to the Huffines Institute

In 1999, Dr. Jack Wilmore and several faculty members at Texas A&M University began to meet with the intention of connecting the science and practice of sports medicine and human performance more closely. What Dr. Wilmore and others had seen was the gradual separation and disconnection between those who did the research in Sports Medicine from the coaches and athletes who actually used sports medicine. Thus, the precursor to the Huffines Institute was born.
