ABOUT ME


Jason C. Marvin (Pronouns: he/they) is a 5th-year Ph.D. Candidate, National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Fellow, and Cornell Provost Diversity Fellow in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University.

His research is focused on investigating the biological mechanisms underpinning scarless tissue healing in an adult mammalian model of tendon regeneration to develop effective therapeutic interventions. They are committed to expanding access to higher education through inclusive teaching strategies, LGBTQ-focused advocacy and visibility, and K-12 STEM outreach. Jason currently has served as a Center for Teaching Innovation (CTI) Fellow and Graduate Resident Fellow (GRF) in the West Campus House System, facilitating workshops and providing resources for the personal and professional development of his fellow Cornellians. He has served as the Director of Mentorship for Out in STEM (oSTEM), Inc. to launch a global mentorship program for LGBTQ+ students and professionals. Jason has served as the Outreach Co-Chair for the Cornell Graduate Biomedical Engineering Society chapter and as a GRASSHOPR Fellow to improve STEM literacy and expose local youth to careers in science. He has also served as an organizer for Communication Science (ComSciCon) workshops (Cornell’18/NY’19/ScienceWriters’19) that offer STEM researchers hands-on science communication training. Jason received his B.S. in biomedical engineering from The University of Texas at Dallas, where he was a recipient of an AES Honors full-tuition scholarship. After completing his Ph.D., Jason hopes to pursue a career as a tenure-track professor at a research-intensive institution.

 
After completing his Ph.D., Jason will be starting as a postdoctoral research fellow under Prof. Jenna Galloway at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) / Harvard Medical School in the summer of 2022.
