Jonathan Richard 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. He has worked for St. George’s University of London[1] and as an Associate professor in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at Universidad del Rosario, Bogotá, Colombia.[2] He returned to the UK in 2018, and practiced at the Department of Microbiology, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.[3] Dr Kerr died in April 2023.[4]
