Ferdinand Adolph Theophil Hueppe (Born August 24, 1852 in Neuwied-Heddesdorf, died September 15, 1938 in Dresden, Germany) was, from 1900 to 1904, the first Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB, German Football Association) president.
From 1872 to 1876, Hueppe studied medicine at the University of Berlin, afterwards serving as a military surgeon. From 1880 to 1884 he was a member of bacteriologist Robert Koch's staff in Berlin, and later worked at Carl Remigius Fresenius' institute (the Chemischen Institut Fresenius) in Wiesbaden. From 1889 to 1912 he was a professor at Charles University in Prague.
Hueppe is remembered for his pioneer investigations of hormesis in regards to chemical stimulation/inhibition of bacterial growth. The eponymous "Hueppe’s rule" is an historical term synonymous with hormesis.
His book on bacterial research, Die methoden der bakterien-forschung, was later translated into English and published in 1886 with the title "The methods of bacteriological investigation". Other noted efforts by Hueppe include:
- Naturwissenschaftliche Einführung in der Bakteriologie, 1896 - Natural sciences introduction to bacteriology.
- Der moderne Vegetarianismus 1900 - Modern vegetarianism.
- Hygiene der Körperübungen, 1922 - Hygiene associated with physical exercise.
