Dr. Jones has been part of the faculty at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine for 12 years. His central research interest is the host-pathogen relationship of chronic infectious diseases. This interest has led to diverse projects including mathematical modeling of host-pathogen interactions and vaccination approaches that would be effective at promoting enduring protective immunity. The approach that his group has put forward for a single-shot reproductive sterilization vaccine encompasses expertise from a diverse group of people including industrial engineers, materials science engineers, chemists, immunologists, and veterinarians.
