Jason A. Papin, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering “One quality that Jason has that makes him an effective advisor is his ability to tailor his mentorship style to his students’ needs and his willingness to adapt to changing needs over time.” – Student “He is not the type of boss who only cares about data and results; he also cares about the growth of the individual beyond his or her research. In a recent meeting, I was lamenting the state of my data and Jason, confident that things would eventually come together, reminded me that I have learned so much in the process. He clearly prioritizes the whole individual and not just the accumulation of work.” – Student “Many professors are good teachers, but Jason is more than a teacher, he’s an outstanding mentor. Jason has a strong commitment to empowering students and promoting their success. He is one of the most influential mentors of my graduate career, and I know I am not the only one who feels that way.” – Student “Jason has cultivated in me the ability to truly be an independent thinker and scientist, and I believe this to be true for all his graduate students in the past, in the present, and undoubtedly in the future.” – Student
