Session 8 – Lipidomics
Omics-Scale High-Throughput Targeted LC-MS/MS Approach for Lipid Profiling: Focus on Application to Biomedical and Clinical Research
Julijana Ivanisevic is a Metabolomics and Lipidomics group leader and Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Biology and Medicine, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Julijana joined UNIL in 2015 following a postdoctoral training at The Center for Metabolomics and Mass Spectrometry at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California (led by Prof. Gary Siuzdak). She received her PhD in chemical biology at the Aix-Marseille University, France, in 2011. The aim of our research projects is to advance the knowledge on cardiometabolic health and healthspan with reproductive ageing. To this end, we are applying high-coverage quantitative MS-based approaches to metabolic phenotyping of Swiss population (CoLaus, Complete Health and Heart cohort) over time, in collaboration with clinicians and statistical geneticists. Longitudinal metabolome-wide association studies with cardiometabolic risk factors as health outcomes and gene variants as instrumental variables, are applied to provide insights into metabolite role in disease etiology.
