Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Hopkins Marine Station
BioI am a geneticist who works in the field of marine science and conservation. My work is aimed at reducing knowledge gaps in conservation science through scientific research, community partnerships and knowledge exchange across disciplines. Genomics research by our group aims to inform conservation policy and assist in reducing illegal wildlife trade.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Jones' research has focused on genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms that regulate immune responses. Recent work was centered on the regulation of innate immune responses that are triggered by conserved microbial components. As these responses can be harmful they are highly regulated in their occurrence, magnitude, and duration. Her lab discovered a novel mechanism that negatively regulates innate responses, mediated by the phosphatase calcineurin.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsPhotosynthesis provides energy for nearly all life on Earth. Our lab aims to dramatically accelerate our understanding of photosynthetic organisms by developing and applying novel functional genomics strategies in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. In the long run, we dream of engineering photosynthetic organisms to address the challenges that our civilization faces in agriculture, health and energy.
