Professor Anthony Redmond


Professor Redmond’s research focuses on the interaction between mechanics and biology in a range of musculoskeletal conditions, encompassing interventions studies, disease pathways and related enabling tech. Professor Redmond is an NIHR Senior Investigator and is a past Arthritis Research UK and NIHR research fellow and clinical academic and now leads a team of approximately 20 researchers ranging from Professor through to research assistant level and from a range of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. He is well known for his work in biomechanical conditions, particularly in foot and ankle problems associated with the musculoskeletal diseases. One area of particular interest is the use of combinations of internal imaging, together with more traditional biomechanical modelling. Locally he established the FASTER foot and ankle programme and latterly, a Joint Replacement Technologies group within the NIHR Leeds Biomedical Research Centre, working with surgeons, radiologists, AHPs and engineers to provide better joint replacements.

He currently chairs the NIHR ICA panel for Clinical Lectureships and Senior Clinical Lectureships and has contributed to NICE guidelines, the RCGP training curriculum and a variety of policies, guidelines and standards. He is past chair of ARMA, and of the EULAR health professionals’ standing committee. Professor Redmond has more than 110 peer-reviewed papers and has contributed to more than a dozen of the leading texts in rheumatology and musculoskeletal medicine.

Research interests

I am interested in the interaction between mechanics and biology in the musculoskeletal system. My work focusses on computational modelling of joint mechanics using state-of-the-art technologies such as multibody modelling, combined with advanced imaging techniques, patient reported outcome and tissue characterisation.
