Jason Sello was an ARCS Scholar at Morehouse College during the 1996-1997 academic year. Dr. Sello is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Brown University. Prior to his appointment at Brown, Prof. Sello was a visiting scientist at the John Innes Centre in Norwich, England and a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School with Prof. Christopher T. Walsh. He earned a Ph.D. in biophysics from Harvard University in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. Stuart L. Schreiber.

Dr. Sello has been synergistically using experimental methods from chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, and genomics to develop new anti-infectives and biotechnology platforms for the conversion of plant biomass to biofuels and commodity chemicals. He has received recognition for his accomplishments, including a National Science Foundation Career Award and the Martin Luther King Jr. Visiting Professorship at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
