Dr. Srinivasan is the Associate Director for Healthcare Associated Infection Prevention Programs in the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He is board certified in Infectious Diseases. Before coming to the CDC he was an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Infectious Diseases Division at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine where he was the Founding Director of the Johns Hopkins Antibiotic Management Program and the Associate Hospital Epidemiologist. His primary responsibilities include oversight and coordination of efforts to eliminate healthcare associated infections. A distinguished research scientist, his research and investigative areas of concentration include outbreak investigations, infection control, multi-drug resistant gram negative pathogens and antimicrobial use.

Dr. Srinivasan has published more than 70 articles in peer-reviewed journals on his research in healthcare epidemiology, infection control and antimicrobial use and resistance. From 2006-2010, Dr. Srinivasan led the CDC’s healthcare outbreak investigations team. In 2008, he assumed the medical directorship of a new CDC campaign called “Get Smart for Healthcare” which is designed to improve the use of antimicrobials in healthcare facilities. Dr. Srinivasan envisions a future where patients are safer because health-care associated infections have been stomped out and antibiotics are used correctly. He is keenly interested in partnering with Vermont Oxford Network, and member centers engaged in the iNICQ Collaborative, to promote the rapid-cycle implementation and testing of evidence-based antibiotic prescribing practices.
