Yunping Qiu received his Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2008, Shanghai, China. He received his M.S. degree from Tianjin University in 2005 and his B.S. degree from China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing, China, in 2001. He worked as a Postdoc (2009–2011) and scientist (2012–2014) at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro, NC, USA. He is currently a Research Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine from 2014. Qiu devoted himself to chromatography-mass spectrum-based metabolomics studies with sample treatment, data analysis, metabolites identification, and biological interpretation. He developed analytical protocols for urine, serum and tissue metabolite extraction, derivatization, and GC-TOF-MS / UPLC-QTOF-MS based metabolic profiling analysis. He was also involved in software development and evaluation of GC-MS based metabolomic data analysis. His work interest includes metabolites biomarker discovery for early detection of cancers (especially for colorectal cancer) and understanding energy metabolism associated with oncology and diabetes. He has coauthored more than 60 papers in metabolomics study.
