Building capacity to perform cow-side measurements of cellular metabolism via the mobile Seahorse XF HS Mini Analyzer

PI: Vanessa Leone


Leone is an assistant professor of animal and dairy sciences specializing in animal biologics and metabolism at UW–Madison. Her work mainly focuses on microbes and animal health and wellness.

Leone’s project will examine mitochondrial function in dairy cattle using two new Agilent Seahorse XF HS Mini Analyzers. This equipment will directly measure functionality of mitochondria through mitochondrial respiration, glycolysis, and ATP production.
