Dr Mick Jones is Emeritus Reader in Molecular Medicine in the Department of Infectious Disease. His research interests centre on DNA sequencing technologies to understand the structure and function of genes, particularly viral and bacterial genes associated with pathogenesis.
Dr Jones started the MSc in Molecular Medicine course based at the Hammersmith Hospital Campus in 1996.
Dr Jones obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Birmingham. After post-doctoral fellowships in Aarhus, Denmark and at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund laboratories in London, he moved to the Royal Postgraduate Medical School in Hammersmith in 1985 as a Wellcome Trust Lecturer working on the genomic structure and function of herpes viruses.
