Frank Biedermann (ORCID 0000-0002-1077-6529) earned his B.Sc. from Leipzig University in 2004 before relocating to Cambridge, UK. There, he completed his Part III degree (equivalent to an M.Sc.) and, in 2013, received his Ph.D. in Supramolecular and Polymer Chemistry under the guidance of Prof. Oren Scherman. Subsequently, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, and at the Institute of Supramolecular Science and Engineering (ISIS) in Strasbourg, France. During this time, he conducted research on supramolecular analytical chemistry with Prof. Werner Nau and on metal-organic and microporous materials with Prof. Luisa De Cola.
In 2016, Frank was awarded the prestigious Emmy Noether Grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG) and established his independent research group at the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Additionally, Frank served as a young researcher representative on the board of the Heidelberg Karlsruhe Strategic Partnership (HeiKa) and is an active advisory board member for the RSC flagship journal, Chemical Science. In 2021, he received the highly esteemed Aventis Life Science Bridge Award for his contributions to supramolecular assay development for molecular diagnostics applications. Starting in July 2023, he will lead an ERC Consolidator group at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), focusing on the development of "SupraSensors" for small molecule detection in biofluids.
Outside of his professional life, Frank enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, as well as playing chess.
