Department and Institute of Physiology Professor Der-Cherng Tarng

 

Professor Der-Cherng Tarng of the Department and Institute of Physiology won the "2019 Ministry of Science and Technology Outstanding Research Award” in the field of kidney research. Professor Tarng has devoted the last twenty years to research on erythropoietin and iron as a supplement in order to improve anemia in kidney patients. His team includes talent from a rage of fields including clinical science, molecular biology, animal science and medical engineering and the group has been able to effectively integrate hardware and software resources. The research group's partners in cooperative research span both domestic and international institutes and they have made breakthroughs in the area of renal anemia pathophysiology.

 

The most prominent research achievement of Tarng’s team has been the renal anemia clinical guidelines initially published in 1996. It was not only earlier than similar guidelines in the United States, Europe and various Asian countries, but the range of indicators, such as heme, ferritin, and transferrin, are in line with the 2012 international KDIGO Guidelines.

In 2018, their “Renal Anemia Clinical Treatment Guideline”, which was – pioneered by Taipei Veterans General Hospital, reached beyond Europe and the USA and is world-leading; it won the golden “National Biotechnology and Medical Care Quality Award”. This proves that the team’s scientific and medical research is of a world-leading standard.

 

Tarng remarked that, “I want to thank all my teachers and superiors who have always supported me on my journey. You have always inspired me towards my academic research. I thank my medical care and research team, and it is everyone’s effort that has contributed to our fruitful research results. In the future, my team will continue to focus on renal anemia AI control and take part in industrial and academic cooperation to achieve the goal of 'end anemia, regain health.” This talented team from Taiwan will continue to lead Taiwan and the world towards the next milestone in renal anemia treatment.
