Nobel Laureate Prof. Ferid Murad Hired as Honorary Chair Prof. of Asia Univ.
Today, Nobel Laureate Professor Ferid Murad was presented the title of
Honorary Chair Professor of Asia University. Following the ceremony, Professor
Murad presented the speech about continuing researching new drugs curing
brain cancers and diarrhea. He hopes that such research would be helpful for the
world and jokingly mentions winning another Nobel Prize.
According to H. J. Chang, President of Asia University, Professor Murad would
come to Asia University for lectures twice a year—at least a week of each visit. In
addition to teaching and lectures, Professor Murad would also instruct teachers and students with their research.
Professor Ferid Murad wins 1998 Nobel Laureate of Physiology and Medicine for his discovery concerning nitric
oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. Nitric Oxide is related to many diseases mechanisms,
such as high-blood pressure, heart hypertrophy, etc. His research inspired the invention of Viagra, thus Professor
Murad is also called “Father of Viagra.”
Professor Mruad introduced the history of Nobel Prize, saying that for
hundreds of years the award of Nobel Prize has been the focus of the world. People give the highest credit to
winners of Nobel Prize in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, Peace, and Economics. Currently 180 winners
alive with average age of 80 meet every 10 years. Through explaining the history, Professor Murad hopes young
people would be more interested in science research.
Professor H. L. Lin, Department of Computer Science and Information
Engineering, and Assistant Professor Henry J. Tsai, Department o Healthcare
Administration asked Professor Murad how to become “Father of Viagra” and
what the new research ways are. Professor Murad replied that while nitric oxide
was first found as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system and used for
lower blood pressure, he later realized that nitric oxide is also helpful for erectile
dysfunction, later on developing into Viagra. As for new research projects, Professor Murad mentioned working on
new drugs for diarrhea since children in the third world often die from such disease.
Professor Murad emphasized the importance of finding answers from simple experiments, like working out
crossword puzzles. For possible aftermaths after taking Chinese medicine, Professor Murad suggests that starting
research from heavy metal pollutions might be helpful in finding out answers. T. J. Lin, a junior at the Department of
International Business, commented that she was honored to see and talk with Professor Murad. While Asia
University often invites international lecturers for speech, with Professor Murad’s upcoming lectures at Asia
University, she believes these experiences would broaden students’ views and get students more interested in
