Jasmine Fisher, of Microsoft and the University of Cambridge Biochemistry department, talks to students

Posted on

We were very fortunate to have a visit from Jasmine Fisher. Jasmine has devoted her career to developing methods for Executable Biology; her work has inspired the design of many new biological studies. She is a pioneer in using formal verification methods to analyse mechanistic models of cellular processes and disease. Her research group focuses on cutting-edge technologies for modelling molecular mechanisms of cancer and the development of novel drug therapies. Our students comment:
Alice West
“I loved the way she brought together the two disciplines of computing and Molecular Biology, and that within nine years she genuinely believes that we will be able to control cancer.”

Max Holgate
“I really liked the idea that she started out living in a tiny village in the Israeli desert, then ended up studying all over Europe, including Cambridge.”

Jasmine Watts
“I was inspired to think that working in different countries is a real possibility for me.”
