Timothy Fredsgaard-Jones

DPhil Student

DPhil Student & MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow

I am a clinical research fellow working on tuberculosis immunology and vaccine platforms in Professor McShane's Group.

I am an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow, and am completing a DPhil in Clinical Medicine under the supervision of Professor McShane, Dr Jethro Johnson (Kennedy Institue), Professor Marc Lipman (UCL) and Dr David Lowe (UCL). I will be recruiting individuals with recent exposure to Mycobacterium tuberculosis and will characterise the early pulmonary and systemic immune response. I will also explore the respiratory microbiome in these individuals and investigate the impact of the microbiome on disease states in TB.

I completed my medical training at the University of Cambridge and University College London, and have worked as a medical and infection doctor in London, Glasgow and Oxford. I have conducted research in Tuberculosis, HIV, COVID-19 and enteral parasites both in the UK and Malawi. I have a particular interest in Tuberculosis and Tropical Medicine, and have completed the DTMH and an MSc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I have worked as a research fellow with the Infectious Diseases department at the Royal Free Hospital London, and joined the McShane group while working as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Infectious Diseases/GIM in the Thames Valley Deanery. While an ACF I was lead clinician for two BCG challenge studies.

I currently organise the infection placements for Oxford University undergraduate medical students, and am also a tutor on the Oxford University LabMed course.
