In 1999 Gordon became Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Institute of Orthopaedics & Musculoskeletal Science at University College London on the site of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.
Professor Blunn has extensive research experience in orthopaedic medical devices, materials and musculoskeletal tissues. A number of his research projects have been translated into clinical practice. He has worked on the reattachment of tendons to bone and to implant surfaces, the integration of implants with the skeleton, the wear of implant bearing materials and the use of bone graft substitute materials.
