Amy Victoria Jones studied Biological Sciences at the University of Reading, and took up Research Assistant positions at the Wessex Regional Genetics Laboratory, in the research teams of Dr Fiona Ross and Prof. Nick Cross. Amy used her research to complete a PhD in leukaemia genetics at the University of Southampton, specialising in the molecular pathogenesis of myeloproliferative neoplasms. This led to a number of high impact publications, and a Kay Kendall Junior Fellowship conducted in part in the laboratory of Prof. Tony Green, at the University of Cambridge. To gain further translational genetics experience, Amy spent two years leading human genetic studies with 23andMe and academic partners for the pharmaceutical company, Pfizer. In 2016, Amy was recruited back to the field of molecular haematology to take up a section lead position as HCPC registered Principal Clinical Scientist for the Molecular Genetics section in HODS.
