Frank Chytil​

Chytil.jpgFor nearly 30 years, Dr. Chytil’s research focused on deciphering how vitamin A works at the molecular level. His research advanced the understanding of how vitamin A affects lung function of premature infants. In 2003, he published an autobiographical essay in the Annual Review of Nutrition titled “Rough and Rocky Road to the Retinoid Revolution,” which detailed his research and his life in Czechoslovakia under Nazi occupation and later communist rule.
