Alumna – M.S. |

Jason Ho was raised in Cupertino, California in the heart of the Silicon Valley, but moved south to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). In the Tresguerres lab, his research project focused on screening derivatives of pure, marine natural products in order to identify and characterize a novel activator of the soluble adenylyl cyclase (sAC) enzyme and aid research on signal transduction pathways. With the support of the Tresguerres lab, Jason graduated from UCSD in December 2013 with a Master of Science degree in Biology.

Jason currently remains in San Diego as a Research Associate for a small biotech firm called InhibRx, LLC. He now dedicates his research efforts toward developing therapeutic antibodies to combat various types of cancer tumor cells. In his spare time, Jason enjoys catching up with his friends from the Tresguerres lab, taking advantage of San Diego’s flourishing craft beer community, and indulging in a number of hobbies ranging from swimming and hiking to painting and sewing.
