Director of Metabolomics and Proteomics Training
Nichole Reisdorph earned her PhD from the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota. She did her post-doctoral work with Gary Suizdak at the Scripps Center for Mass Spectrometry in La Jolla, California. She went on to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Department of Anesthesiology where she established a proteomics core facility for the Nutrition Center, and directed the Hands-on Proteomics Training Program. Nichole joined NJMRC in July of 2006. Her research activities include the application of mass spectrometry-based metabolomics and proteomics to a wide range of basic and clinical research problems. She has taught over 20 hands-on workshops attended by over 200 participants. Nichole is the Director of Proteomics and Metabolomics training.
Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics, label-free quantitative proteomics
Rick Reisdorph earned his PhD from the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota. He did his post-doctoral work with Peter Vogt at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California. He joined the Department of Immunology at NJMRC in May of 2006. Rick was trained in molecular biology, and focused on molecular mechanisms of oncogenesis while at Scripps. Rick directs the quantitative proteomics efforts in the lab, with a focus on label-free ms-based techniques. He is also establishing the microarray division of the core facility.
