Professor Mervyn Singer

Professor of Intensive Care Medicine & Chair of the International Sepsis Forum, University College London

Mervyn Singer is Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at University College London and past Chair of the International Sepsis Forum. He co-led the ‘Sepsis-3’ redefinitions task force (Singer et al. JAMA 2016) that moved the emphasis of sepsis away from the bug and more towards a dysregulated host response triggered by the infection. He has researched and published widely on sepsis, infection and antibiotic use (and abuse) in journals such as NEJM, Lancet and JAMA, covering a broad range of basic mechanistic, translational and clinical research. He also provides advice on clinical management of sepsis to various national and international bodies.
