Joshua J. Coon, PhD is a Professor of Chemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Coon’s program specializes in the development and application of novel chemical instrumentation and molecular analysis methodology.  His research can be broadly classified in four areas:  Instrumentation and Informatics, Proteomic Methodology, Biomedical Applications, and Metabolomics.  The research team currently consists of 15 Ph.D. students, three postdoctoral students, and four staff scientists.  Even beyond the impact of its science, the most important product of the team's research is a rapidly growing cohort of alumni (15 Ph.D. and three postdoctoral) who are now engaged in the biomedical enterprise in various academic and industrial settings. The team considers itself fortunate to have outstanding resources at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, including over 6,000 square feet of modern research space and oversight of nearly a dozen mass spectrometer systems – all of which are operated nearly 24/7.  The research, which is detailed below, is highly collaborative – since 2014 the team has published over 30 manuscripts with as many different Principal Investigators.  In their 10 year history the researchers have written nearly 100 collaborative manuscripts with 60 distinct Principal Investigators from all across the country.  These works, along with non-collaborative writings (~ 50), have had broad and sustained impact, as evidenced by citations (> 10,000 over the past decade) and widespread use/adoption.
