The Vice Dean of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) College of Medicine, Dr. Jiunn-Jong Wu, who is also distinguished professor at the NCKU Department of Medical Laboratory Science and Biotechnology and Institute of Molecular Medicine, has been awarded the Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology to commend his excellent achievements and influence in medical microbiology.

With a humorous personality and a great physique, Dr. Wu’s working hours are very long. Most people at the NCKU College of Medicine know that Dr. Wu will always be the first person to arrive at the office, usually at around 3 or 4 in the morning, and the last person to leave.

Despite working for long period of time, he always shows excellent spirits and great joy during work. “I’m dedicated to work and I never feel tired of what I’m doing,” said Dr. Wu.

Dr. Wu received his PhD degree at the Pennsylvania Temple University’s Department of Immunology and Microbiology, focusing on clinical microbiology, bacterial pathogenesis, bacterial resistance, epidemiology, nosocomial infection and others. Till now, Dr. Wu has published more than 250 Science Citation Index (SCI) papers.

Awarding Dr. Wu the Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology was an effort initiated by the Dean of School of Medicine at Temple University, in order to show recognition for Dr. Wu’s outstanding performance and lifelong contributions to the field of microbiology for 30 years.

In Taiwan’s medical field, former NCKU President Dr. Michael Lai has also been given this award while carrying research at the University of Southern California in 2002.

The American Academy of Microbiology (AAM) is a worldwide organization. Every year, three AAM fellows will nominate researchers from all over the world to receive this honor.

After going through detailed review of nominees, 87 researchers were awarded the Fellow of AAM in 2013. Dr. Wu accepted the award at the end of May.

“Being awarded this honor is the recognition for my lifelong contribution to academics,” said Dr. Wu, who would like to share this honor with NCKU as well as show his gratitude to his teachers and advisers for giving him education and guidance.

“I hope that winning this award will help raise the visibility of Taiwan in the international community, thus enabling them to understand Taiwan’s research and contributions in the microbiology field,” Dr. Wu added.
