Professor Arden trained at St Thomas's Hospital, London, where he also completed four years of research into the genetics of osteoporosis. During this time, he gained an MSc in Epidemiology and an MD.

He moved to the South Coast in 1996 and in 1998 spent six months as Visiting Professor in Epidemiology at the University of San Francisco.

In February 2000 he commenced his post as Consultant Rheumatologist at Southampton General Hospital, and Senior Lecturer in Rheumatology at the University of Southampton. He is based at the Botnar Research Centre, where he continues his research into osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. He currently is a Member of WHO/International Osteoporosis Foundation Committee for e-learning project and the National Osteoporosis Society Scientific Advisory Board; he is an International Osteoporosis Foundation Scientific Ambassador and sits on the EULAR (European League Against Rheumatism) Osteoarthritis Guideline Committee and OARSI (Osteoarthritis Research Society International) Guidelines Committee.

Research Interests:

  • The epidemiology and pathophysiology of osteoarthritis
  • The epidemiology and pathophysiology of osteoporosis
  • The role of vitamin D in musculoskeletal health
  • Clinical trials in common musculoskeletal conditions
