Overview

Jasmin graduated from the University of Exeter in 2020 with a degree in Biological Sciences, specializing in Molecular and Cellular Biology. During her undergraduate degree she also worked part time for the Molecular Genetics team at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. In autumn of 2020 she began her PhD, focused on the discovery of novel genetic causes of disorders of insulin secretion, such as hyperinsulinism and monogenic diabetes, supervised by Dr Thomas Laver, Dr Sarah Flanagan and Dr Matthew Johnson.

Qualifications

  • BSc Biological Sciences (Molecular and Cellular), University of Exeter

Research

Research interests

In Jasmin’s undergraduate dissertation project, she investigated a role of inverted-formin 2 in peroxisomal constriction, an uncharacterized stage of peroxisomal biogenesis, and explored the potential pathophysiological roles of this protein in human disease. She is interested in the genetics of human disease, particularly in rare monogenic disorders. The aim of her PhD is to identify new genes and genetic mechanisms causing monogenic disorders of insulin secretion.
