Professor Jonathan Rees is the Director of the Botnar Institute for Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford and is Honorary Consultant Orthopaedic Shoulder Surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.  

Professor Andrew Carr will step down at the end of March as NDORMS Head of Department after 21 years. During that time he has realised a vision, alongside the comprehensive rebuild of the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre Hospital (NOC), to construct the three wings of Botnar Research Institute on the hospital site, and the move of the Kennedy Institute for Rheumatology to Oxford, bringing world leading research hand-in-hand with NHS patient care.

Professor Gavin Screaton, Head of the Medical Sciences Division commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy for his 21 years of service to the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, and welcome Professor Jonathan Rees as the new Head of Department.
