Jarrod Prodeman is a former highly respected epidemiologist whose career ended in 2008 after it was revealed that he had faked some research to obtain a grant according to H50 Kono Kalakaua.

As such, Prodeman was forced to resign from his position and was left disgraced by the outcome.

He later stole several vials containing smallpox and had four men become unwitting guinea pigs for his experiment although one later escaped, exposing the experiment.

As such, Prodeman killed the remaining subjects and realizing that the authorities were on to him, fled to Honolulu, Hawaii International Airport where he later switched IDs with Benjamin Gallagher and flew to Los Angeles with NCIS Special Agents G. Callen and Sam Hanna and Hawaii Five-0 Task Force Detectives, Danny Williams and Chin Ho Kelly hot on his tail which resulted in NCIS: Office of Special Projects and the H50 forming a joint partnership to find and stop Prodeman as well as prevent the threat of a smallpox outbreak.

Despite trying to evade the authorities, Prodeman was not as successful as he had been in Hawaii and was eventually caught and arrested by Chin and Sam who tackled him after managing to witness him returning to his hotel room in Venice Beach.

During an interrogation with Sam and Callen, Prodeman revealed that he had sold the vials to Dr. Rachel Holden.

It's presumed that after being taken into custody, Prodeman was jailed for attempting to commit bio-terrorism or that he was given the death penalty for launching biological attacks against U.S citizens.
