Stephan Warnke

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Stephan Warnke obtained his PhD in 2015 at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, where he developed novel MS-based approaches to answer long-standing questions from the frontiers of physical chemistry and biochemistry, for which he was later awarded the Schering Prize for the 'best dissertation in the field of chemistry'. He continued his academic work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland where he built on his previous experience in analytical instrument design to develop innovative prototype instruments for biomolecule analysis. Most promising is the unique combination of high-resolution ion mobility separation with cryogenic infrared spectroscopy, for which applications in glycomics, metabolomics, and small-molecule identification are being developed by him and his colleagues. Stephan's work has been featured in a number of scientific publications and patents. He most recently received an entrepreneurial grant with the goal of making the new infrared fingerprinting technology broadly available in the future.
