Caroline N. Jones is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. Prior to joining UT Dallas in August 2020, she was an Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech (2015-2020). 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 in the context of sepsis. Dr. Jones was a recipient of the NIH NIGMS Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA) (R35) (2019-2024). She is also the member of several professional societies, including the Biomedical Engineering Society, Shock Society, and Society for Leukocyte Biology. She is a co-inventor on a patent and author or co-author on more than 30 scientific publications.
