  • Staff Scientist at Stanford University School of Medicine
      Kévin Contrepois is an expert in metabolite profiling and liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. He leads the metabolomics and lipidomics research in the Snyder laboratory at Stanford University, California, USA. He is particularly interested in the integration of metabolome and lipidome to other 'omes' in the framework of precision medicine with a special emphasis on host-gut microbiome interactions. He recently developed an optimized analytical platform involving the combination of HILIC- and RPLC-MS for the comprehensive metabolic profiling of human urine and plasma. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Paris-Sud (France) where under the supervision of Carl Mann and François Fenaille, his doctoral research focused on identifying chromatin modifications associated with cellular senescence and understanding their biological implications. He developed an UHPLC-MS methodology on intact proteins to characterize and quantify histone variants and post-translational modifications in a high-throughput manner.

    The study presented will represent the most comprehensive characterization of lipid changes in the context of aging and DR to date. The results will show a comparison of both targeted and untargeted lipidomics platforms, which collectively serve as useful resources to the lipidomics community, particularly non-experts, that are interested in comprehensively profiling lipids in biological systems.
