Coleman then continued his studies in the United States, at the University of Wisconsin, obtaining his doctorate there in 1958.

That same year he joined the staff of The Jackson Laboratory and, although his original intention was to stay for just a couple of years, he would end up spending his entire research career with this institution. He retired in 1991 and, since then, has devoted much of his time to ecological issues like forest management and land conservation, with the same enthusiasm he brought to research.

Jeffrey M. Friedman was born in Orlando, Florida, United States, in 1954, but was brought up in the suburbs of New York City. His father was a radiologist and his mother a teacher.
