Dr Jon Otter

Director of Infection Prevention and Control, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

I’m a scientist focused on healthcare-associated infection, antimicrobial resistance, and Infection Prevention and Control. I am currently the Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer in the National Institute for Health Research Health Protection Research Unit (NIHR HPRU) in Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance at Imperial College London. I previously managed the Infection Prevention and Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship team at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, was a Research Fellow at the Centre for Clinical Infection and Diagnostics Research (CIDR) (King’s College London / Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, London), and was the Scientific Director of the Healthcare Division at Bioquell. I have a first class honors degree in Microbiology from the University of Nottingham (2001) and a PhD in epidemiology (of MRSA) from King’s College London (2011). (Just to clarify, it didn’t take me 10 years to do my PhD!) Research interests include the epidemiology of MRSA, C. difficile and multidrug-resistant Gram-negatives (especially CPE), antibiotic and antiseptic resistance, the role of contaminated surfaces in transmission, and molecular typing methods including some recent dabbling in whole genome sequencing. My pubmed count is coming along nicely (it’s now >100). I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists (FRCPath), alumnus of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, and was previously Assistant Editor at the Journal of Hospital Infection, and a member of the Infection Prevention Society (IPS) Scientific Programme Committee. You can find me on Linkedin & Twitter.

I run a blog on healthcare epidemiology and microbiology with Marc Bonten, Martin Kiernan and Andreas Voss called ‘Reflections on Infection Prevention and Control’. Check it out!
