After consultant posts in Mansfield and Southampton I moved posts to Hull in 2017. My clinical interests are infections in haemato-oncology patients, tuberculosis and bacterial infections in people who inject drugs. Research areas include vaccinology, consequences of blood stream infection and severity assessment in severe infection

Dr Gavin Barlow, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Infection & Academic Phase III (Final Year) Lead at Hull York Medical School and Hon. Consultant in Infection at Hull University Teaching Hospitals

Gavin is Senior Clinical Lecturer in Infection & Academic Phase III (Final Year) Lead at Hull York Medical School and Hon. Consultant in Infection at Hull University Teaching Hospitals. Clinical experience is broad, but his main interests are orthopaedic infection, outpatient IV antibiotic therapy, complex bacterial infection, and antibiotic stewardship (previously trust lead 2005-19). Research interests include but are not limited to antimicrobials, antimicrobial stewardship and resistance, respiratory infections, the epidemiology of community and hospital-acquired infections, bacteraemia, and prognostic prediction in infection. Gavin is co-chief-investigator of the NIHR funded BioDriveAFS trial – due to start March 2022 – that aims to compare a biomarker/diagnostics driven approach to antifungal management in patients with blood cancers and receiving chemotherapy versus the current standard of care: click here
