    1. avatar jason clarke says:

      ha! i had never heard of that until your comment. had to google it. too funny.

  9. avatar jason clarke says:

    Great to be here with you all. Thanks for the interest in my bio. I try to stay as balanced as I can. I am a black belt in judo and a brown belt in brazilian jiu-jitsu. i’ve been in martial arts for 30 years. i use to fight mma a long time ago. i work for a Big 10 university in the midwest and run my bjj academy as my second “job” at night.

    my research is about normal and abnormal kidney development at the molecular and genetic level. i also am a gene hunter for a renal birth defect called “bilateral renal agenesis”which is where the kidneys of the baby never formed/developed and this is a lethal condition. you can find my research publications on PubMed.

    1. avatar Dan A says:

      This might be a long shot but do you post on Terminal Lance?

      1. avatar jason clarke says:

        negative. no idea what that is, but i will look into it.


      2. avatar jason clarke says:

        checked into “terminal lance”. no, i don’t post there.
