Dr James Jones
James studied medicine at Christ’s as part of the Cambridge MB/PhD programme. He completed his PhD in Professor Douglas Fearon’s laboratory, investigating the interaction between immunological and wound healing responses in a mouse model of pancreas cancer. Targeting cancer associated fibroblasts allowed control of pancreatic tumour growth by a specific immune response. This work is being continued by other laboratory members to develop the use of drugs that would reproduce this effect in humans.
James supervises second year undergraduates at Christ’s studying medicine and natural sciences, for the courses in human reproduction and medical ethics & law. He is currently working as a junior doctor at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St. Edmunds, as part of the Cambridge Academic Foundation Programme.
