John G. Bartlett, M.D. is a noted HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C virus specialist, medical author, medical professor and author of over 500 peer-reviewed reviewed medical journal articles.[1][2][3]

Dr. Bartlett is a Emeritus Professor of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who previously served as the Chief of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine from 1980 - 2006.[4][5]

In 2014, the medical journal Clinical Infectious Diseases published an article entitled John G. Bartlett: A Transformative, Visionary Leader of Johns Hopkins Infectious Diseases.[6]

The National Foundation For Infectious Diseases commenting on Dr. Bartlett being recipient of the 2005 Maxwell Finland Award for Scientific Achievementon wrote:

John G. Bartlett MD, director of the Division of Infectious Diseases, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, has taken this a step further. If the findings are not readily accessible to those who need them, then likewise they are of little value. A significant part of Dr. Bartlett’s career has been devoted to ensuring that useful findings are readily available to those who need them. He is the author or co-author of some 30 guidelines on infectious diseases aimed at practicing physicians. Continuously updated—there are as many as 67 editions—the guidelines are published in easily carried, pocket-size books.

But this is only one of Dr. Bartlett’s achievements. In 1980, when he came to Hopkins, he revitalized the division of infectious diseases and built a department that is widely held as one of the best the United States. In 1983 he started an AIDS clinic at Hopkins that is today regarded as second only to the AIDS clinic in San Francisco, and since 1997 he has served as co-chair of the federal guidelines for antiretroviral therapy for HIV infections.

Dr. Bartlett, along with Dr. D. A. Henderson, co-founded, the Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies in 1997.

In 1978, as an infectious disease researcher, he identified Clostridium difficile as the major agent of antibiotic-associated colitis, and he has also contributed significantly to our understanding of community acquired pneumonia and anaerobic infections.[7]

In 2017, Johns Hopkins Hospital opened a multimillion-dollar outpatient facility called the John G. Bartlett Specialty Practice for Patients with Infectious Diseases.[8]

In addition, he currently works for the Department of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health.[9]

Bartlett's research specialties are: HIV/AIDS; Diarrhea (C. difficile-associated diarrhea and antibiotic-associated diarrhea); Pneumonia (community-acquired) and anaerobic infections.[10]
