Dr. Edward C. Jones López is trained in infectious diseases and epidemiology and has extensive experience in the design, implementation and oversight of large, international collaborative research projects. Focused on translational science, over the last decade Dr. Jones has participated as principal investigator or co-investigator in several clinical studies in tuberculosis (TB) and HIV, and has made a number of contributions to the understanding of TB in human populations. Fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese, Dr. Jones has lived and worked for extended periods of time in under-resourced settings providing him with a unique ability to work effectively in cross-cultural settings and pursue his longstanding interest in TB, HIV/AIDS and global health issues. Dr. Jones is particularly interested in applying epidemiologic methods to understand the determinants of TB transmission, infection and disease, using a multidisciplinary research approach.
