Why the Coon lab?

I am very interested in analytical chemistry, and I found the topic of mass spectrometry especially fit my interests. In the Coon Lab, I am able to work with a team of skillful and helpful people, do meaningful research, and learn mass spectrometry techniques. The skills and techniques I learn from this lab will be a definite asset to me in my future career.
