Mihail (Mike) Mitov, PhD, Scientist II/Laboratory Operations Manager
Dr. Mitov provides initial consultations for PIs for all RM SRF services. For oxidative stress and Seahorse analyses, Dr. Mitov provides PIs assistance with experimental design, data analysis and troubleshooting. He also routinely determines indices of oxidative damage, separates and analyzes proteins for proteomics analyses and uses Seahorse technology-mediated determination cellular bioenergetics and mitochondrial functions through various assays.
Michael Alstott, MS, Senior Laboratory Technician
Mr. Alstott assists in all aspects of the daily laboratory operation, including oxidative stress and Seahorse analyses. He also provides experimental administrative assistance to the Director and RM SRF service users.
