Dr Chris Jones

NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow

Geoffrey Pope Building, University of Exeter , Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK

 Office hours:

9-5 Mon to Fri

Overview

I am an infection doctor completing specialty training in the South West region. Throughout my career I have developed an interest in tropical diseases and issues of global health importance. Previously I completed a PhD at Imperial College London (Prof Graham Cooke and Dr Marcus Dorner) using novel and established cell culture systems to study hepatitis C virus and resistance to NS5A inhibitors – one of three new classes of direct-acting antivirals that have revolutionised the treatment of HCV. During this period, I was the trial doctor for several HCV interventional studies and worked within a group at the forefront of efforts to achieve elimination of viral hepatitis as a global public health threat by 2030.

 

I am currently an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow attached to Prof Elaine Bignell’s group at the MRC Centre for Medical Mycology. I aim to combine my previous virology experience with the Bignell group’s expertise on Aspergillus fumigatus pathogenesis to design Adenovirus vaccine vectors for use with in vivo models of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis. Limited antifungal treatment options and increasing azole resistance mean that alternative strategies such as vaccination are urgently needed to reduce the substantial morbidity and mortality linked to Aspergillus-associated diseases. I hope to continue this important work by securing postdoctoral fellowship funding.
