Professor Shing-Hwa Lu won the International Judges Award at "15th Moscow International Salon of inventions and innovation technologies«Archimedes»".

Prof. Lu in the Department of Urology has won the International Judges Award at "15th Moscow International Salon of inventions and innovation technologies «Archimedes»". Moscow Archimedes International Salon of Inventions and Innovation Technologies is one of the world's three major invention exhibitions, along with Swiss Geneva and German Nuremberg International Invention Exhibition. More than 1,000 works were presented in this competition, and there were only 12 International Judges Award winners. Prof. Lu's research on stem cell multi-potent differentiation capability won the"The Best Nanotechnology Award" from the international judges; this was an exceptional achievement. In addition, Prof. Lu also won a Gold Medal from the Exhibition for the invention competition.

This time, Prof. Lu participated in the competition with stem cell research, which he has worked on for many years. He used new methods to isolate and purify stem cells, obtaining purer stem cells, which can be used in tissue reconstruction for tissue engineering and regeneration medicine, including for the treatment of sexual and voiding dysfunction. Past stem cell research faced the problems of stem cell purification and insufficient cell numbers, which affected later tissue reconstruction and function restoration. This time, he used the method of immunoselection to improve upon the isolation and purification of stem cells, and this won him the major award.

At an interview, Prof. Lu stated that on those days, at the Taiwan booth, there were Taiwanese national flags everywhere. During the competition and when he went on stage to accept the award, he always wore a national flag pin. In his acceptance speech, he also emphasized that he was from Taiwan. He was very pleased to have brought honor to Taiwan.
