Spotlight on Atsushi Takahashi, recipient of the 2022 Edwin N. Frankel Award for Best Paper in Lipid Oxidation and Quality

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Atsushi Takahashi is the recipient of the 2022 Edwin N. Frankel Award for Best Paper in Lipid Oxidation and Quality. This award recognizes an outstanding paper in the area of lipid oxidation or quality. This award is presented by the Lipid Oxidation and Quality (LOQ) Division in recognition of Edwin Frankel's 50 years of lipid oxidation research. Kalsec sponsors the award.

Dr. Takahashi is the lead author on "Quantitative Evaluation of Oxidative Stability of Biomembrane Lipids in the Presence of Vitamin E" published in the Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society. He will present his research as part of the General Session in the LOQ technical program at the 2022 AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo. You can register to attend the meeting on May 1–4 in person in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, or online.

About Atsushi Takahashi

Atsushi Takahashi

Dr. Takahashi received his Ph.D. in engineering from Tohoku University in 2002. He is currently an associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Tohoku University, Japan. 

His research interests include lipid oxidation in food, heterogeneous catalytic chemistry and sustainable process engineering. His work focuses specifically on the control of oxidation mechanism via reactive oxidation species from on metal catalysts to in biomembrane.

By focusing on bottlenecks using macroscopireaction kinetics analysis, he is working on seamlessly elucidating the mechanisms and design reactions and processes on a trans-scale from the entire food system to microscopiradical reactions. 

He won the Lipid Oxidation and Quality Division's Best Paper Award in 1999 and 2004 and the Edwin N. Frankel Award for Best Paper Lipid Oxidation and Quality in 2016.
