Lecturer in Clinical & Surgical Anatomy

Dr Ross Jones works on the human neuromuscular junction (NMJ). The NMJ is the point of contact between nerves and muscles, and it is known to be an early target in MND. The group’s research aims to bridge the gap between animal models of MND and people with MND by studying the similarities and differences in human and animal NMJs. Ross collaborates closely with the Gillingwater group.

Ross studied Medicine at the University of St Andrews/University of Manchester before training in General Surgery in the North West Deanery. He was appointed to his current position in Clinical & Surgical Anatomy in 2017 and works closely with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Scotland Deanery in the development of surgical training.
