Research Interests

Dr. Jasim developed an interest in Endocrine neoplasia and related hormonal disorders while working at MD Anderson cancer center in Houston, TX. She subsequently worked with her mentors at the mayo clinic to develop this interest. She focused on the therapeutic outcomes and treatment modalities in advanced metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer and relevant adverse events of available therapies with possible ways to optimize outcomes. She was also involved in clinical trials related to the use kinase inhibitors such as pazopanib and lenvatinib in advanced and progressive malignant pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma. She had multiple poster and oral presentations at the ATA and Endocrine society on this topic. She is looking into optimizing patient experience undergoing treatment for advanced endocrine neoplasia and familial endocrine tumor disorders by approaching it in systematic and multidisciplinary fashion.
