New Food & Function Associate Editors: Andrew Neilson & Kee-Hong Kim

We are delighted to welcome two new Associate Editors to our Food & Function Editorial Board, Professors Andrew Neilson (North Carolina State University) & Kee-Hong Kim (Purdue University) 

Andrew P. Neilson 

Associate Professor in the Plants for Human Health Institute

North Carolina State University, USA

He received a BS in Food Science at Brigham Young University (2005) and PhD in Food Science at Purdue University (2009). Dr. Neilson also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan Medical School (2009-2011), in the Department of Family Medicine and Comprehensive Cancer Center. Prior to joining the faculty at North Carolina State University, Dr. Neilson began his career as a faculty member in the Department of Food Science and Technology at Virginia Tech (2011-2018).

Dr. Neilson’s research focuses on the interactions between dietary phytochemicals and the gut microbiome, and how these interactions influence human health. Of specific interest are the bioactivities of microbial metabolites produced when the gut microbiome metabolizes unabsorbed dietary components. Specific health areas of interest include gut health and metabolic syndrome. Dr. Neilson is a member of the Institute of Food Technologist (IFT), the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), and the Phytochemical Society of North America (PSNA).
