Haiwei Gu researches metabolomics. Specifically, his focus is on the development of advanced analytical tools and statistical methodologies for profiling metabolites and metabolic pathways in complex biological systems. He also pursues metabolomic applications to study diseases, nutrition, drug toxicity and the environment. On a routine basis, the Gu Lab performs metabolic measurements of more than 2,500 small molecules (MW<2,000 Da) (https://sites.google.com/a/asu.edu/arizona-metabolomics-research-center/). Gu and his group have developed both targeted and global metabolite profiling methods on three different platforms: liquid chromatography (LC)-MS/MS, gas chromatography (GC)-MS, and LC-Orbitrap-MS, totaling 12 different metabolite panels.
Gu obtained his doctorate from Purdue University. He completed postdoctoral training on LCxLC in the University of Minnesota. From 2011-2017, Gu worked as a research assistant professor working in the Northwest Metabolomics Research Center (NW-MRC) in the University of Washington. Currently, Gu is an assistant professor in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University.
