Dr. Redmond received his B.A. magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University in 1961, studied at the Institute of Neurology (Queen Square, London) and received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in 1968. He was a research resident at the Illinois State Psychiatric Institute, Chicago, and held a fellowship with the National Institute of Mental Health, Laboratory of Clinical Science (1972-74). He came to Yale in 1974 and has been Professor of Psychiatry since 1986. He has served as President of the American Society for Neural Therapy and Repair (2002-03) from which he received the 2011 Bernard Sandberg Memorial Award for Brain Repair. He is an elected Fellow of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
Dr. Redmond directs the Neural Transplant and Regeneration Program, a component of the Yale Department of Psychiatry that researches cellular and viral repair strategies for central nervous system (CNS) diseases. The division has an illustrious history, having been among the first groups to use fetal mesencephalic grafts in parkinsonian primates. Current approaches to neural replacement and repair include the transplantation of fetal tissue, gene delivery using regulatable viral vectors, administration of trophic factors, and the use of embryonic and adult-derived neural stem cells in animal models of Parkinson's disease and other CNS disorders. Dr. Redmond has received numerous scientific grants to support his research and has published over 350 scientific papers. Dr. Redmond was supported by NIH as a “Research Career Scientist” for the maximum allowed period of 20 years.
