medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. For 27 years, he has been a leader for the School of Medicine’s worldwide efforts to understand, prevent, and treat AIDS. He received the prestigious 2005 Maxwell Finland Award for scientific achievement from the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. Dr. Bartlett was the first to direct clinical trials in Baltimore of new treatments that prevent HIV from replicating, and he pioneered the development of dedicated inpatient and outpatient medical care for HIV-infected patients. In 1984, when AIDS was still in its infancy, he helped start a small clinic within the Moore Clinic to serve a small group of gay men with AIDS, which along with providing research data about how the disease spread, grew to become the centerpiece of the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. It is now the largest program for HIV care in Maryland. Dr. Bartlett cochaired the national committee that drafted the first and all subsequent treatment guidelines for HIV-infected patients. He counsels numerous medical societies and health ministries around the world on infectious diseases in general and on AIDS specifically. Bartlett’s research interests have dealt with anaerobic infections, pathogenic mechanisms of Bacteroides fragilis, anaerobic pulmonary infections, and Clostridium difficile-associated colitis. Since joining Hopkins in 1980, his major interests have been HIV/AIDS, managed care of patients with HIV infection, pneumonia (community acquired), and, most recently, bioterrorism. Clinically his interests include HIV primary care, general infectious diseases, HIV and hemophilia, and HIV managed care. He received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth University and earned his M.D. at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York. He then completed residency training in Internal Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Bartlett also completed Fellowship training in Infectious Diseases at UCLA and at the Wadsworth Veterans Administration Hospital.
