Dr. Clinton Jones

The research being pursuedby Clinton Jones is focused on three interwoven topics:

  1. examination the mechanism by which neurotropic alpha-herpesviruses, bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), establish and maintain a latent infection in sensory neurons,
  2. examination of how stress stimulates BoHV-1 and HSV-1 reactivation from latency,
  3. the role that BoHV-1 plays in the polymicrobial disease, bovine respiratory disease complex.
