Dr. Isaac Jumper
Dr. Jumper grew up on a beef cow-calf operation in northeast Arkansas, and obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry with a minor in Animal and Dairy Sciences from Mississippi State University. Dr. Jumper graduated from the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2018, completed a residency in Population Medicine in 2021, and graduated with his Ph.D. in Veterinary Science with a concentration in Population Medicine in 2023. Dr. Jumper is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Pathobiology and Population Medicine at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Jumper's research interests center around antimicrobial stewardship in food animal production agriculture. Dr. Jumper is interested in developing methods of using health and production data to make evidence-based management and husbandry decisions that reduce the risk of disease in food producing animals. Dr. Jumper is also interested in discovering methods of mitigating the risk of production limiting diseases in beef cow-calf production, such as bovine anaplasmosis, while also reducing the need for and preserving efficacy of antimicrobials.
