Dr. Joseph C. Anderson is the owner of Anderson Bioscience, a biotechnology consulting company in Seattle, WA, and an Affiliate Assistant Professor of Bioengineeing at the University of Washington.
Dr. Anderson has three degrees in chemical engineering. As a graduate student at the University of Washington (M.S. and Ph.D.), he began his investigations into the exchange of chemicals in the lung. He continued studying chemical exchange in the lungs during two research fellowships in Bioengineering at the University of Michigan and in Pulmonary Medicine at the University of Washington. Afterwards, he briefly joined the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington as an Assistant Research Professor. Over the last 10 years, he has worked in the medical device industry to help develop devices for treating severe pulmonary emphysema and for measuring acetone in exhaled breath.
Dr. Anderson has over 40 peer-reviewed publications including 20 full-length scientific papers and a book chapter. His area of expertise focuses on the mechanisms by which the lung exchanges material and energy between the blood, tissue, and breath. He is an expert on the theory and practice of measuring concentrations of various products in the breath and evaluating measurement uncertainty. Dr. Anderson testifies in court on the exchange of gases between the blood, tissue, and breath, on the measurement of chemicals in breath and blood, and on the variability of these measurements. His testimony focuses on our new understanding of ethanol exchange in the lung and biologic factors affecting the measurement of ethanol in exhaled breath.
