Jasmine Plummer: Of any achievement, what I am most proud of, is lifting up those around me

Jasmine Plummer, Director at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, shared a post by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on LinkedIn, adding:

“Big milestones are always the things we chase. But of any achievement, what I am most proud of, is lifting up those around me…
A great teacher is when their mentees surpass them. Thank you St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the shoutout, I am only a reflection of those who continue to be advocates for us all.”

Quoting Director at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s post:

“This Women’s History Month, we honor all the trailblazing women who have shaped the landscape of science. Today, we’re highlighting Jasmine Plummer, director of the  Center for Spatial Omics at St. Jude. A highly sought after spatial omics expert, she is building her team from the ground up and works with numerous departments across the institution.

With a rich background in neurobiology and oncogenesis, Plummer’s expertise is driving innovation by developing cutting-edge spatial omics platforms, revealing the intricacies in cell interactions and tissue organization. Through the center, she is helping to shape the institution’s strategy, as part of the 2022-2027 St. Jude Strategic Plan, which aims to accelerate discovery and advance cures through developing shared resources. These platforms will reveal how cells interact and organize across multiple dimensions. Plummer also oversees efforts to study cell signaling and tissue organization to understand the impact of spatial context on biology and disease.

By being at the forefront of spatial omics advances, Plummer is positioning herself as a key connection to technology innovators. She is taking a unique multi-omics approach to examine genetic risk as a factor for altered cell fate across cancers, including ovarian, breast, and prostate, and neurodevelopmental disorders.

‘I’m honored to be among the group of strong, brilliant women at St. Jude,’ said Plummer. ‘The work that we do here is not only making a difference in the world of research but is also paving the way for the future generation of female scientists.’

From pioneering research to groundbreaking discoveries, women continue to shape the future of science and inspire generations to come. To read more about Plummer’s story and the future advances of her team. visit here.”
