Huw Jones studied medical biochemistry, followed by a Masters in molecular mechanistic toxicology, at the University of Birmingham. Following his PhD studies (investigating how zebrafish larvae metabolise drugs, University of Birmingham), he undertook post-doctoral positions at the University of Sheffield and the Hull York Medical School (University of Hull). Having spent 4 years as a lecturer in biochemistry at the University of Hull, he is now a Lecturer in drug metabolism and medical biochemistry at the School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences, and a researcher within the drug metabolism team in the Institute for Cancer Therapeutics.
ResearchDr Jones' research interests are focused on:
- The pharmacology of natural products (particularly dietary polyphenols) in health and disease states, with a particular focus on the modulation of oxidative stress and RONS signalling in diseases associated with ageing.
- The pharmacokinetics of drugs.
Dr Jones teaches on a wide range of modules across the Clinical Sciences degree programme, especially on subjects related to biochemistry. He also contributes to the delivery of the MSc Drug Toxicology and Safety Pharmacology programme.
