Professor of Food Biofunctionality
Institute of Nutritional Sciences
University of Hohenheim

Professor Frank graduated with a Diploma in Nutrition from Bonn University (2000), obtained a PhD in Food Science at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (2004), and received postdoctoral training at the Universities of Kiel and Hohenheim. He was a visiting scientist at the Linus Pauling Institute (USA), the University of Reading (UK) and the University of Surrey (UK).
Dr Frank was appointed Professor of Human Metabolomics at the Institute of Nutritional and Food Sciences at the University of Bonn in 2012 and, in 2013, Full Professor and head of the division Food Biofunctionality at the Institute of Nutritional Sciences and, in 2018, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Hohenheim.
He is president of the Society of Nutrition and Food Science (www.snfs.org), and editor-in-chief of NFS Journal, associate editor of Nutrition, and member of the editorial boards of The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, BioFactors, and Plant Foods for Human Nutrition.
His research interests lie in factors that determine the absorption, metabolism, and elimination of phytochemicals and different vitamin E congeners and in particular the long-chain vitamin E metabolites. Dr. Frank and his team examine novel strategies to overcome the low intrinsic oral bioavailability of phytochemicals and investigate their biological activities.
