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
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
