Jason Heming, PhD

Dr. Heming



PhD in Molecular Virology and Microbiology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, 2013

BS in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Minor in Chemistry, Clarion University of Pennsylvania, 2004


Fred Homa, PhD


Areas of Interest

Basic research, biochemistry, virology, and microbiology

Why I Chose Pitt

I was attracted by the Interdisciplinary program because at the time I was choosing a graduate school I had a general interest in virology and microbiology but nothing more specific. It allowed me to gain a better understanding of my interests without having to commit too early to a specific program.

Following his graduation, Jason accepted a position for a time as a Postdoctoral Associate in the lab of his mentor, Dr. Fred Homa.
