Professor David Jones
David is Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education and Students) and Professor of Biomaterials Science at Queen’s University Belfast.
As an internationally renowned pharmaceutical/biomedical engineer my research seeks to provide engineering solutions to medical and pharmaceutical problems. These include innovations in the design of drug containing implants and medical devices to that reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with medical device related infection. Commercialisation of this research has occurred and is ongoing. Within the pharmaceutical domain, I have developed novel implants for the treatment of local diseases and, additionally, engineering technologies to develop new dosage forms, including strategies in which drugs of low solubility (negating their clinical utility) may be developed for clinical usage.
