Andrey Karlyshev is a professor of microbiology at Kingston University with research interests in applied, environmental and medical microbiology. He has a particular interest in Campylobacter jejuni, which is now recognised as one of the main bacterial causes of gastro-intestinal diseases world-wide. Indeed in the UK alone this accounts for more than 50,000 cases per year.

Professor Karlyshev has had more than 70 papers published in esteemed journals, and been an invited speaker at conferences around the world. He has been on the editorial board of the journals Advances in Life Sciences and Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine, and has been a reviewer for articles submitted to leading journals in his field.
