Current Research

The Jones Lab is a multidisciplinary research team focused on bridging cutting edge engineering disciplines with immunology to prevent, diagnose, and treat immune-related disorders. We focus our studies on: (1) Engineering innovative lab-on-a-chip platforms to model and study immune cell-pathogen interactions with single cell precision; (2) Developing imaging techniques and implantable sensors to track and monitor real-time host-pathogen interactions (e.g. biomarkers, cells) in animal models; (3) Merging quantitative single-cell measurements and mathematical modeling with the goal of understanding how a patient's unique immune signature correlates to clinical outcome.
