iseases. His major research interests have included anaerobic infections, pathogenic mechanisms of Bacteroides fragilis, anaerobic pulmonary infections, and Clostridium difficile-associated colitis. Since moving to Johns Hopkins in 1980, his major interests have been building the Infectious Disease Division, development of the Hopkins HIV Care Program, bioterrorism, antibiotic resistance, C. difficile and AIDS. "At a time when HIV was anathema to many ID specialists and hospitals, Dr. Bartlett recognized its scientific importance and the moral imperative of caring for those affected," explains Dr. Gallant. Dr. Bartlett is credited with creating one of the world's first AIDS services, which is "arguably the most respected and academically productive of its kind," says Gallant.

Dr. Bartlett is a member of the Institute of Medicine, a master of the American College of Physicians, past president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), and a recipient of the Kass Award from the IDSA. In 2005, Dr. Bartlett was awarded the Alexander Fleming Award by the IDSA and the Finland Award from the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). He has been appointed to co-chair the federal guidelines on antiretroviral agents, and spearheaded efforts to control use of antimicrobial agents and encourage pharmaceutical companies to produce new anti-infectives for combating the rising tide of resistance. In addition, Dr. Bartlett has authored over 500 articles and reviews, more than 280 book chapters, and over 60 editions of 18 books.
