Mad props to you. Reply jason clarke says: February 2, 2013 at 02:17 ha! i had never heard of that until your comment. had to google it. too funny. Reply jason clarke says: February 2, 2013 at 01:49 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.
