Dr Gaud PINEL obtained her PhD in Food Science in 2001. Since 2002 she is working as a scientist in LABERCA (French National Reference Laboratory for growth promoters and some environmental chemical contaminants (Dioxines, PAHs, melamine ...) in food); her research activity is devoted to Chemical Food Safety issues. In particular, she acts as Scientific Advisor Deputy in the laboratory and is involved in the management of research projects linked to growth promoters. She as contributed to significant advances in the detection of recombinant growth hormone abuse in lactating cows and in racing horses, as well as to the establishment of criteria to distinguish between situations of frauds and natural occurrence of certain substances (natural steroid hormones, thyrostats, ...). In 2009, she obtained a second PhD in Analytical Chemistry dedicated to Food Safety issues. Her competences have recently enlarged from targeted mass spectrometric approaches to more global and untargeted strategies such as metabolomic to study the effect of growth promoters and discover biomarkers of anabolic practices. She as published more than 25 peer reviewed papers in the field.
