A Change for The Germ Guy

Hi everyone,

As you may know, in addition to my work in the public as The Germ Guy, I’m also a member of the staff at the University of Ottawa and for years, have been granted the association with the institution as a member of their media experts.

Well, all good things must come to an end.

Due to some internal directives, I’ve been asked to disassociate myself from the University in the public.  The reasons don’t need to be discussed here but for the future, anything that you see here or any of my other contributions in the media will no longer have any link back to the University of Ottawa.

That being said, I also have some very good news to share!

Over the coming months, you’ll be seeing more of The Germ Guy as several new opportunities have come my way.  It’s still too early to talk about them but when they are made official, you’ll be the first ones to know!


As many of you know, I’ve been working on a book with DoubleDay in Canada and I’m happy to say that we have a title and a release date.  It’s still months away but come October 2013, you’ll be seeing The Germ Code in your local bookstore.  It’s been a fantastic experience and I am happy to say that the book will make a great addition to any home.

So, next year promises to be a fantastic one and I’m sure that it will surely make 2013: The Year of Germs – but more on that later.

Would love to hear your comments…

  2. YES!!! I AGREE – that BOOK of Yours WILL surely be ‘enjoyed’ – NOT Only that ? BUT “OPEN” ‘Windows’ to the ‘Understanding’ of how AND What Ways WE can ALL Assist in combating any ‘foreign-alien-unwanted new viruses that hold the “Global-Village” ‘hostage’ *******

    As far as the ‘dis-association’ ??? Well the Public will be “Heirs” to Your own Phd Jason ***

      I just found out that St. Augustine of Hippo said this:
      “PhD means YOU are a SERVANT who HELPS “OTHERS” along the ‘Pilgrim-WAY’ ”

      WOW !!! What Your Mother meant by ‘You have your OWN PhD’ referred to the “Epistles” of OUR own Discources******* :)

    Hi Jason,
    Not sure why U. of O. would make that change, but politics have a way of changing rules midstream. Regardless, I enjoy reading your articles and hearing/seeing your media coverage in helping elevate public awaremess in microbiology and infectious diseases. Education and prevention is the key to social change and I am sure your new book will help address these everyday issues. Perhaps you would consider a guest blog authored article for our Talk Clean To Me Blog as the publish date comes closer to release? Best of luck and Happy 2013.
