She has been Principal Investigator for several externally funded research projects, leading a multidisciplinary team comprising academics and clinicians working for the UK NHS. Professor Redsell is currently leading the Proactive Assessment of Obesity Risk during Infancy study (ProAsk) which has been funded by the UK Medical Research Council to develop a programme for health visitors to use with parents of infants to identify childhood obesity risk.
