Robert Moots is a senior UK clinical academic rheumatologist. Qualifying in Medicine in London, he earned his Ph.D. in Immunology at the University of Oxford, UK, and worked at Harvard Medical School before returning to the United Kingdom to establish a new rheumatology group in Liverpool, where he was the first professor of rheumatology. His research focuses on inflammatory diseases, from bench to bedside, and he has numerous publications in the field to his credit.
