Jonathan Ricardo Kerr, BSc, MBBCh, MD, PhD, FRCPath, is a British researcher who became interested in ME/CFS after studying the consequences of Parvovirus B19 infection and finding that some of those infected went on to develop CFS. Formerly of St. George’s University of London,[1] he is presently working as an Associate professor in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at Universidad del Rosario, Bogotá, Colombia.[2]
