Biographical details

Professor Cheryl Jones is a world-renowned clinician-scientist in paediatric infectious diseases who 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. She is Head of the Centre for Perinatal and Emerging Infections Research and a Paediatric Infectious Diseases specialist at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, and President of the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID). Professor Jones’ research interests include surveillance and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of viruses, the study of emerging paediatric CNS infections, and the treatment of infections in the newborn. She leads national surveillance for childhood encephalitis (the Australian Childhood Encephalitis (ACE) study) via the Paediatric Enhanced Disease Surveillance network (PAEDS), and for rare congenital infections, through the Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit (APSU). Surveillance information has been used to study neonatal herpes virus infection, childhood hepatitis C virus infection and congenital rubella and to identify new viral causes of childhood encephalitis and manage emerging infectious encephalitis epidemics. Surveillance data for these key infections are vital for identifying target groups for prevention, evaluating strategies such as vaccination, and generating new research into health policy. She has an interest in neonatal herpes, which can cause severe, disseminated, potentially-fatal infection in the newborn, and leads basic research on the mechanism of herpesvirus infection and the body’s response to it. Professor Jones serves on the National Centre for Immunisation Research & Surveillance (NCIRS) Board and chairs the NCIRS Science Advisory Committee, and multiple NHMRC and ARC committees. She was a member of expert panels 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.

Research interests

A key area of current research is emerging CNS infections in children. Professor Jones, with Professor Robert Booy, has established the Australian Childhood Encephaltiis (ACE) study, a major national collaboration of active prospective surveillance of children hospitalised with severe encephalitis in Australia, to define the burden of infectious encephalitis and its epidemiology. This work has helped to identify and manage localised encephalitis epidemics from new causative agents (enterovirus and parechovirus). The children are being followed prospectively to determine the long-term neurological and general health consequences of these severe childhood CNS infections. Professor 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. Collaborative research with Cerebral Palsy Australia includes studying the association between congenital cytomegalovirus infection and cerebral palsy.

Research on surveillance of perinatal infections in Australia through the APSU is ongoing and remains vital for informing clinical practice and health policy. The work has resulted in the development of guidelines for postnatal screening for hepatitis C virus in Australia.

Professor Jones’ early studies on herpes simplex virus (HSV) provided a paradigm for important safety features of human HSV vaccines. She developed a unique murine model of neonatal HSV infection and generated a series of major findings on the immunopathogenesis of viral infections in the newborn period. Her team is studying the modulation of antiviral immunity in HSV infection, with the aim of developing vaccines/therapeutics that provide lifelong protective immunity without inducing autoimmunity. Collaborative work with Associate Professor Andrew Holland is investigating age-related differences in the immune response to HSV, using human neonatal skin samples.

Professor Jones leads a new research program through the Marie Bashir Institute, on the neurological consequences of severe influenza. 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.
