Jasmine Moody

Jasmine Moody is a senior Biology major at Spelman College from Chicago, Illinois. Jasmine currently conducts research during the academic year at Emory University’s School of Medicine Biochemistry department under the mentorship of Dr. Anita Corbett. Her current research focuses on functional characterization of an RNA-binding protein that plays a role in intellectual disability. In addition to conducting research at Emory University School of Medicine, Jasmine has also conducted research at Spelman College. At Spelman College, her research focused on epigenetic regulation of stress response proteins using microRNA modulators. Her research employed analyzing the genetic sequences of stress response protein SPTLC1. Based on her research experience, Jasmine has found that her interests include molecular biology and biochemistry. Jasmine received a first place at the 2013 Spelman College Research Day for a biology group poster presentation. After graduating from Spelman College in 2016, Jasmine plans on continuing her education in either molecular biology or biochemistry. Her ultimate goal is to earn a PhD in either of these fields and to become a Principal Investigator in academia or industry. “Not only am I interested in furthering our knowledge of basic cellular processes such as RNA expression, nuclear export and stability, but I am also dedicated to increasing the interest of women and ethnic minorities in STEM research. It is my belief that increasing the exposure of the science disciplines much earlier can begin to improve these large gaps in diversity within the STEM-related fields.”
