Ian Poxton

Ian Poxton was until recently (Dec 2012) Professor of Microbial Infection and Immunity at the University of Edinburgh College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. He is now Professor Emeritus at the University of Edinburgh.

His research interests include i) the pathogenesis, immune response, molecular epidemiology and diagnosis of Clostridium difficile infections; ii) pathogenesis and vaccine development of diseases caused by other Clostridium species, notably Equine Grass Sickness; and in the recent past iii) the role of endotoxin/ lipopolysaccharides in the host. He has served two terms (2005-2009) as Chair of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases’ (ESCMID) Study Group for Clostridium difficile and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medical Microbiology (2002-2007) and was Editor-in-Chief of Reviews in Medical Microbiology (1996-2002). He chaired the Society for Anaerobic Microbiology from 1999-2004. He was given a lifetime achievement award by the Anaerobe Society of the Americas in June 2012. He has published almost 200 papers, including over 100 on anaerobes with nearly 50 on Clostridium difficile. He has co-authored two text books and has contributed chapters to many more.
