David Antcliffe is an honorary clinical lecturer at Imperial College and a locum consultant in Critical Care at Charing Cross Hospital. 

He obtained his degree in medicine in 2003 from University College London and pursued post-graduate training in Acute and Intensive Care Medicine across London. Between 2011 and 2015 he completed a PhD at Imperial College using metabolic profiling to aid in the diagnosis of pneumonia in patients requiring critical care funded by the Imperial College BRC and the Intensive Care Foundation.

After obtaining a dual CCT in Acute and Intensive Care Medicine in 2016 he returned to Imperial College to work as a locum consultant and honorary clinical lecturer.

His current research interests centre on using a range of profiling techniques, including metabonomic, transcriptomic and inflammatory profiling, to identify sub-phenotypes in sepsis that could predict a patient's responsiveness to specific therapeutic strategies and lead to a personalised approach to sepsis care.
