Dr. Arthur Furst
1914 - 2005
Dr. Arthur Furst, Founding Member Emeritus and “spiritual leader” of GNLD’s Scientific Advisory Board, is internationally regarded as a pioneer in toxicology and cancer research. Dr. Furst founded the Stanford Cancer Chemotherapy Laboratory and was at the forefront of disease-prevention science for 50 years. Many of his discoveries led to groundbreaking GNLD products, and his enormous talent, energy, dedication, and vision are major reasons why, year after year, GNLD has delivered such leading-edge products to fulfill genuine human needs.
Inspired by Dr. Furst’s pioneering research and his contributions to human health, the Arthur Furst Lecture Series on Nutrition and Disease Prevention presents current, scientifically based knowledge about the composition of food, the physiology and biochemistry of the body, and the interactions between the two. This annual lecture series is presented by the Health Library at Stanford and is made possible by a grant from GNLD International.
Created in 1995, the annual GNLD-Arthur Furst Undergraduate Scholarship honors an undergraduate science major at the University of San Francisco for demonstrating remarkable academic ability and the talent for making discoveries to advance science and human understanding.
