Current specific focuses are around the dynamics of host-pathogen interactions in the upper respiratory tract of children, the development and maintenance of mucosal immunity and how this is affected by age and the mechanisms underlying the development of polysaccharide-specific immunity.

Currently Simon Jochems is Assistant Professor at the LUMC. He did his PhD at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, where he studied immune responses to simian immunodeficiency virus infection in natural hosts in the laboratory of Nobel-laureate Francoise Barre-Sinoussi. Following his PhD, he performed postdoctoral research in the experimental human pneumococcal carriage model group led by Prof. Daniela Ferreira at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
