Biographical details

Cheryl Jones is Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health at the University of Sydney and Deputy Dean (Clinical) at Sydney Medical School. She is a consultant in paediatric infectious diseases and Head of the Centre for Perinatal and Emerging Infections Research at The Children’s Hospital, Westmead. She also is Lifespan Discipline Leader at the Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity and co-chair of the Lifespan Research Network at Sydney Medical School. Prof Jones is a world-renowned clinician-scientist in paediatric infectious diseases. Her predominant research interests include surveillance and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of viruses, the study of emerging paediatric CNS infections, viral immunobiology (with an emphasis on developing immunotherapeutics and vaccines), and the treatment of infections in the newborn. After completing her MBBS and general paediatrics training in Australia, she undertook advanced training in paediatric infectious diseases as Clinical Fellow in Paediatrics at Boston Children's Hospital and Research Fellow in Microbiology at Harvard Medical School, USA. Her work at Harvard heralded the commencement of a career studying herpesviruses.Currently, asHead of the Centre for Perinatal and Emerging Infection Research at The Children’s Hospital, Westmead, Prof Jones leads a bench-to-bedside research program covering laboratory-based research, population health epidemiology and surveillance of infectious diseases, and clinical research and translation into practice and policy.In recognition of a distinguished career, Prof Jones has been the recipient of numerous awards – including the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases Frank Fenner Award for Advanced Research in Infectious Diseases, Sylvia & Charles Viertel Foundation Clinical Investigator Award 2004, University of Sydney Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Research Supervision (2009), and two-time winner (2010 and 2013) of the Wiley Blackwell Prize for Medical Education Research awarded at the World Congress of Infectious Diseases and RACP Congress, respectively. She has a long list of professional affiliations including in the past, Paediatric Representative and Chair of the RACP Specialist Advisory Committee in Infectious Diseases, Co-Chair of the Joint Training Specialist Advisory Committee for Microbiology & Infectious Diseases for RACP and RCPA, and Chair of the Education Committee, Sydney Emerging Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity Institute. Currently, she is the University of Sydney representative on the National Centre for Immunisation Research & Surveillance (NCIRS) Board and Chair of NCIRS Science Advisory Committee, and President Elect (2015-2018) of the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID). Prof Jones was part of an expert panel that developed the International Encephalitis Consortium’s 2013 Consensus Guidelines and Priorities of Encephalitis Diagnosis and the 2014 ASID guidelines on the management of perinatal infections. Aside from her national and international collaborations, Prof Jones is passionate about lending expertise toward improving maternal and child health in developing nations – “we need to take a leadership role in training physicians, researchers and the conduct of researchers not just nationally but regionally beyond our borders and to look at the health and research needs of our near neighbours” she says. Accordingly, in collaboration with the School of Public Health Prof Jones has been involved in the ‘Healthy Mother, Healthy Baby’ program of the University of Sydney’s Hoc Mai Foundation in Vietnam, a model that is now being extended to Myanmar.

Prof Jones has made substantial contributions to and remains involved in teaching medical students, postgraduate students and advanced clinical trainees. She has conducted a curriculum review for Harvard Medical School and for the University of Sydney Medical Program. Recently, she developed a web-based-learning program on childhood infectious diseases, and co-developed a unit of study on infectious diseases for the Sydney Professional Masters of Medicine Program. Since 2008 she has chaired the Specialty Advisory Committee for Advanced Training in Infectious Diseases – she presents a biannual national lecture to advanced trainees in infectious diseases and neonatology trainees on congenital and perinatal Infections, and lectures throughout Australia to nurses, GPs and paediatric trainees. She played a key role in developing a curriculum for infectious diseases training for the RACP. Prof Jones is passionate about career mentoring, assisting junior academics, paediatric trainees, clinicians and undergraduate students in their research, clinical and academic careers, including discussions around the challenges of being a working mother.

Research interests

Prof Jones’ interest in childhood infections was inspired by her mentors Profs Margaret Burgess and David Isaacs whose work illustrated the continued devastating impact of diseases such as rubella even in increasingly-affluent Australia. Her early studies onherpes simplex virus (HSV) led to the important finding that an HSV type 2 strain, deficient in essential genes for replication, was unable to maintain stable latency in the nervous system. As the first report of dissociation between the establishment and maintenance of HSV neuronal latency, the results provided a paradigm for important safety features of human HSV vaccines. She also illustrated a novel method of assessing the ability of HSV candidate vaccines to protect against latency. Subsequently, Prof Jones established a research laboratory at Children’s Hospital Westmead, where she developed a unique murine model of neonatal HSV infection and used this to generate a series of major findings regarding the immunopathogenesis of viral infections in the newborn period. Additionally, she established a national collaboration to survey rare congenital infections in Australia, including HSV and hepatitis C virus, through the Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit (APSU). Prof Jones received international and national awards in recognition of the impact of her research. A key area of current research is the study of emerging CNS infections in children as Australia is home to unique vector-borne and zoonotic causes of infectious encephalitis. As part the Critical Infection Centre for Research Excellence, Prof Jones in conjunction with Prof Robert Booy, has established a major national collaboration, the Australian Childhood Encephaltiis (ACE) study. The study involves active prospective surveillance of children hospitalised with severe encephalitis in Australia, to define the burden of infectious encephalitis and its epidemiology. Through this collaboration she has helped to identify and manage localised encephalitis epidemics from enterovirus and parechovirus infections – both hitherto unknown causes of encephalitis. The children are being followed prospectively to determine the long-term neurological and general health consequences of these severe childhood CNS infections. Additionally, as the infectious/immune-mediated cause remains unidentifiable in over 50% of cases, Prof Jones also leads the DICE study (Discovering the Infectious Causes of cryptic Encephalitis), which is using genomic approaches to determine the aetiology of cryptic encephalitis. Prof Jones also is collaborating with the Cerebral Palsy Australia, undertaking studies to help better understand the association between congenital cytomegalovirus infection and cerebral palsy.

An additional research arm involves national surveillance of perinatal infections through the APSU. Using de-identified surveillance, Prof Jones has collaboratively defined the epidemiology of neonatal HSV, childhood hepatitis C virus infection, and congenital rubella in Australia. The results of a longitudinal study on neonatal HSV infection were published in 2014 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. Studies on HCV transmission led to the development of national guidelines for postnatal screening. Surveillance data are vital for identifying target groups for prevention, evaluating preventative strategies such as vaccines, generating new research into health policy, and to inform upcoming studies investigating the impact of these infections on health resources.

The viral immunobiology research team is studying regulatory T-cell-mediated modulation of antiviral immunity in HSV infection – characterising the mechanisms of activation of neonatal regulatory T cells with the aim of developing vaccines and immunotherapeutics that provide lifelong protective immunity without inducing autoimmunity. Additionally, her team is extending previous work using novel in vivo imaging of HSV infection of Langerhans cells in skin. In collaboration with A/Prof Andrew Holland, the studies will attempt to corroborate the important findings (in a murine model) of age-related differences in the immune response to HSV, to human neonatal skin samples.

Prof Jones also leads a new research program conducted through the Marie Bashir Institute of Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity – studying the neurological consequences of severe influenza, which may cause brain injury through encephalitis or hypoxia secondary to acute lung failure or shock. The work aims to understand prognostic indicators, evaluate current treatments, provide guidelines for clinical follow-up, and inform vaccine development and public health policy in Australia.
