Professor of Clinical Radiation Biology, University of Oxford

Bleddyn Jones is Professor of Clinical Radiation Biology at Oxford's Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology and Biology as well as an Honorary Consultant in Clinical Oncology at Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust.

He developed an interest in scientific oncology and mathematics relating to cancer as an undergraduate at Cambridge University. In 1988, he was appointed as Consultant to The Mersey Regional Centre for Radiotherapy and Oncology (later Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology).

In 1999, he became Reader in Oncology at Imperial College London and Hammersmith Hospital and extended his work on clinically relevant modelling with Prof Roger Dale, which also led to their co-editing the first textbook on radiobiological modelling in radiation oncology. In 2004, he transferred to Birmingham to interact further with clinical physics and is presently a major advocate for the use of charged particle radiotherapy in the UK.

In 2005, he was made an honorary Medical Fellow of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and in 2007 an Honorary Fellow of the British Institute of Radiology.
