Jennifer Jones's Biography



Jennifer Jones, Staff Clinician, National Cancer Institute (NCI)

Dr. Jones is a Radiation Oncologist at the National Institutes of Health, who is developing, refining, and applying advanced high-resolution flow cytometric methods to the characterization of EV subsets. She initiated/cofounded the international ISEV-ISAC-ISTH EV Flow Cytometry Working Group, to support the development of consensus best practices and standardization methods for the field. The ultimate goal of her research is to develop a new class of EV-based biomarkers (and methods for anlyzing those EVs) that will enable adaptve therapeutic strategies, where individual patient treatments are customized based on early responses to treatment.

Exosomes and small viruses fall below the detection limits of conventional flow cytometers, which has limited ways to identify, sort, and study, distinct subsets of EVs and other nanoparticles as single particles. In order to maximize information and material that can be obtained with high speed, high resolution flow cytometers we have developed nanoscale Fluorescence Associated Cytometric Sorting (nanoFACS). We have demonstrated nanoFACS to be capable of detecting tumor-cell derived EVs with specific tumor antigens, such as Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA), with fluorescence and scattered light parameters, as well as being capable of sorting two distinct HIV strains (85-125 nm) to >95% purity. The development of our nanoFACS method provides a unique way to analyze and sort functional EV- and viral-subsets, while preserving vesicular structure, surface protein specificity, and RNA cargo activity.
