Dr. Redgrave received his B.A. from St. John's College and his M.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He completed an internship in general internal medicine at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and psychiatric residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he served as chief resident. Dr. Redgrave is an attending psychiatrist with clinical expertise in eating disorders. His research focuses on neuroimaging of anorexia using MRI techniques, eating disorder treatment outcomes; he is also developing with basic science collaborators in our department techniques to use imaging to study animal models of eating disorders.

Dr. Redgrave was faculty member in the Colleges Advisory Program, where he mentored medical students and taught clinical skills from 2009-2013. He was Associate Director for Residency Education from 2012-2013 and has been Director for Residency Education from 2013. more
