周雷博士在新加坡眼科研究所任职高级主任研究员及眼科蛋白组学实验室主任。周博士于1998年在新加坡国立大学获取博士学位后加入新加坡眼科研究所。他致力于运用最前沿的高分辨生物质谱技术，蛋白组学和代谢组学技术在眼科及生物医学的研究。研究结果发表于Nature Communications, Progress in Retinal and Eye Research, Diabetes, Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Proteome Research, Journal of Proteomics and Proteomics等专业期刊。同时也拥有疾病生物标志物及抗菌多肽等多项国际专利。周雷博士是现代人类泪液蛋白组学，代谢组学研究，泪液化学成分分析的先驱及奠基人，极大推动了泪液生物标志物在临床疾病诊断中的应用研究。周博士的研究领域还涉及糖尿病视网膜病变，老年性黄斑变性，近视眼等眼科疾病的蛋白组学和代谢组学的研究。他还曾兼任新加坡质谱协会常务理事。
Dr. Zhou Lei is a Senior Principal Research Scientist and heads the Ocular Proteomics Platform in Singapore Eye Research Institute. He joined Singapore Eye Research Institute after completed his Ph.D. in Department of Chemistry, National University of Singapore in 1998. He applies cutting-edge mass spectrometry and proteomics/metabolomics technologies for biomedical research. He has published papers in Nature Communications, Progress in Retinal and Eye Research, Diabetes, Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Proteome Research, Journal of Proteomics and Proteomics. He also holds several international patents related to biomarkers and antimicrobial peptide. He pioneered the comprehensive analysis of the human tear fluid proteome and metabolome and enabled major advances in disease diagnosis using tear proteins. His research interests also include diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and myopia using proteomics and metabolomics approaches. He is a former board member of Singapore Society for Mass Spectrometry (SSMS).
