Jean-Philippe Antignac joined the staff of LABERCA in 1998. In 2003, he was appointed Research Engineer of the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA). After graduating in 1997 from the National Engineering School in Food Industry Techniques, ENITIAA, Nantes, he devoted his PhD thesis to the “measurement and metabolism study of corticosteroids in bovine using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry” (University of Nantes, 1998-2001). His competence areas are the analysis of residue and contaminants in biological matrices (sample treatment and identification based on mass spectrometry), the validation of analytical methods and the statistical analysis of spectrometric data using multivariate techniques. He also takes an active part in the training and continuous education activities of the LABERCA, teaching students as well as professionals. His specific research field is currently the study of endocrine disruptors in food products of animal origin. The compounds studied include for instance phytoestrogens and brominated flame retardants (polybromodiphenylethers or PBDE and tetrabromobisphenol-A or TBBP-A). The general purpose of this research project lies both on the assessment of human exposure to these substances and the study of their transfer and metabolism through the food chain up to the final foodstuffs.
