Update on current research

Importance of Scientists and Hobbyists working together


I have a strong and diverse research background acquired from experience in industry, clinical, and academic settings. In industry, I served as the director of gene cloning and research at IMMCO Diagnostics Company where I used my training in molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, and biochemistry to produce 2 new products for diagnosing autoimmune disease in patients in just under 3 years. In a clinical research setting, I spent 13 years working at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (RPCCC), focusing on cancer prevention and leukemia. At D’Youville University in 2020, I started my research program with fish from the armored catfish families of the Amazon River Basin of South America focusing on the breeding, growth, and survival of fry. My passion for this new research is only rivaled by my passion for teaching and service to others. I am particularly passionate about mentoring and giving back to those in need. When I am not at work, I spend time with my wife Charlene, and seven children.

This should be an interesting Evening and Program. I have been in the Lab and you will see some awesome fish and Jason is very enthusiastic about his studies of fish and teaching.
