Jasmine McDonald, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

Dr. McDonald’s research portfolio is founded on her interest in understanding underlying biological mechanisms for cancer initiation, promotion, and progression. Given breast cancer is the most highly diagnosed cancer in women globally and the rise in invasive breast cancer in young women, she is focused on a deeper etiologic understanding of the mammary gland across windows where the breast tissue is highly proliferative and may be more sensitive to carcinogenesis. Trained in immunology and infectious disease in the biological sciences in the Public Health Doctoral Program at Harvard University, coupled with postdoctoral training in breast cancer epidemiology from the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University, she has a unique perspective for understanding and examining the complexities of cancer across the life course.
