Notes Jasmine Plummer, PhD, completed her HonBSc in biology and chemistry at the University of Toronto, Canada, where she worked with J.J.B. Smith, PhD, on sensory circuitry. Plummer joined the Department of Physiology and BioPhysics at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) in the laboratory of Roger Croll, PhD. She completed her master of science in neuroscience, specializing in comparative neurobiology and neurodevelopment. In her doctoral work, under the supervision of Joseph Culotti, PhD, at Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Plummer took a genetic approach to identifying new genes that regulate the development of the nervous system. She moved to the laboratory of Pat Levitt, PhD, at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for her postdoctoral work. Plummer’s postdoctoral fellowship focused on systems biology approaches to understanding genetic risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. As an Autism Speaks postdoctoral fellow, her research focused primarily on the discovery and function of gene regulatory networks involving autism risk genes. Her research also broadened to include and interrogate other neuropsychiatric disorder loci, including schizophrenia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder. In 2016, Plummer joined the Center for Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics to lead the Functional Genomics and GWAS team together with Simon Gayther, PhD.
