Jason Cohn, Ph.D. - Director of Business and Research Development
Jason's passion for sports, and particularly hockey, ultimately didnít end up in a NHL career, but it did influence his next steps.
With a background in the medical sciences, Jason went on to do his Doctorate in Genetics and Physiology at the University of Toronto. This allowed Jason to gain an intimate understanding of not only how the body functions at a cellular level, but also in the context of exercise and sport. Jason is recognized in his field, publishing numerous papers and developing commercial diagnostic tests that are currently being patented.
At the same time, Jason sought to advance his interest in strategy and management, by working as a consultant to small business helping them develop strategic plans to grow a successful company.
Now as the Director of Business and Research Development at Impact Machine, he is excited about applying his expertise and knowledge to the sports and protective industry in an effort to improve the safety and performance of protective equipment.
