Peter Spegel, associate professor

I became a PhD in Technical Analytical Chemistry at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University in 2007, after which I moved to the Unit of Molecular Metabolism at the Medical Faculty where I have been until 2016. Since then I am a researcher at Centre for Analysis and Synthesis, Faculty of Science, Lund University. In my research I am combining advanced analytical techniques, mainly based on mass spectrometry, to solve challenging biological questions. I am particularly interested in metabolism and metabolic diseases. Metabolism is a complex network involving thousands of enzymes and metabolites - the metabolome. We use metabolomics, i.e. the determination of as many metabolites as possible in a tissue, to study metabolic diseases.

In my research, I develop analytical methods based on chromatography and mass spectrometry for analysis of metabolites in various tissue. We also apply these methods in studies aiming to increase our understanding of metabolism. Our main focus is on metabolism in enteroendocrine cells, endocrine cells and in blood, and its association with metabolic diseases, primarily type 2 diabetes mellitus.
