    Joachim Frank Speaker Biography

    Joachim Frank studied Physics at the University of Freiburg and the University of Munich. He worked on his dissertation in EM-related image processing with Walter Hoppe at the Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry and finished his Ph.D. in 1970 at the Technical University of Munich.  As Harkness postdoctoral Fellow he visited several labs in the USA. In 1973 he went to the Cavendish Laboratory to work under Vernon Ellis Cosslett on image processing and electron optics.

    In 1975 he received an offer to work as Senior Research Scientist at the Wadsworth Center and start an image processing group associated with a 1.2 MV electron microscope.

    While at the Wadsworth Center he joined the faculty of SUNY Department of Biomedical Sciences and developed the single-particle reconstruction approach. He was a HHMI investigator from 1998 to 2017. Since 2008 he is professor at the Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, and Biological Sciences of Columbia University.

    Frank shared the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Richard Henderson and Jacques Dubochet.
