Laboratory Location: Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute




The Jones Group uses transgenic models, advanced imaging, novel sequencing approaches and quantitative methods to define the critical evolutionary steps that lead to non-melanoma skin and oesophageal cancer, and test the ability of targeted therapies to reduce the risk of cancer development. 

Current projects include: 

  • Mapping mutations in normal human tissues
  • Modelling clonal evolution in pre-cancer

Phil Jones is Leader of the "Stem cells and Cancer" programme, MRC Cancer Cell Unit and is also a Consultant in Medical Oncology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
