Dr Gaud DERVILLY-PINEL obtained her PhD in Food Science in 2001. Since 2002 she is working as a researcher at LABERCA (French National Reference Laboratory for growth promoters and environmental chemical contaminants in food); her research activity is devoted to Chemical Food Safety issues. She acts as Scientific Advisor in the laboratory and is responsible for the management of research projects related to the modeling of contaminants transfer along the food chain and the evaluation of consumer’s chemical exposure.

She has contributed to significant advances in the detection of chemical residues of forbidden compounds in food related matrices, as well as to the establishment of criteria to distinguish between situations of frauds and natural occurrence of certain substances (natural steroid hormones ...); she received in 2012 the EuroResidue Award for her contribution to this field.

Since 2009, her competences have enlarged to environmental contaminants and from targeted mass spectrometric approaches to more global and untargeted strategies, such as metabolomics, to study the effects of chemical exposure and related biomarkers discovery, in a risk assessment perspective.

She is author or co-author of more than 90 peer reviewed papers in the field (h-index 21, RG Score : 39,30 (, 5 book chapters and more than 70 oral communications.

She also teaches at the academic level at Nantes University (France) and is regular lecturer at SARAF (School for Advanced Residue Analysis) and VLAG (Wageningen University, NL).

Finally, she is membership in scientific councils both at institutional levels (National Veterinary College, Nantes) and at international scientific event (Euroresidue, NL).
