As of July 2016, 1998, Nobel Laureate in Medicine, Dr Ferid Murad, MD, PhD, has partnered with entrepreneur and industry pioneer, David Brubaker, to explore opportunities in the Health and Wellness Industry. This comes on the heels of Brubaker’s exclusive partnership with Nobel Laureate, Dr. Lou Ignarro, which resulted in a line of Cardio-Health developed and endorsed products for the Herbalife Corporation that has sold over $3 billion in the past thirteen years and continues to grow annually. Now, Murad and Brubaker look to develop new groundbreaking products in concert with progressive companies in the health and wellness arena.
Nearly everyone has heard of the Nobel Prize, and the award itself is the most prestigious in the field of medicine. Consumers trust Noble Laureates in Medicine and their recommendations are meaningful to the layperson. The University of Southern California recently conducted a study on the sphere of influence of a Nobel Prize recipient. Their findings confirmed that, aside from their own family physician, a recommendation from a Nobel Laureate would have the most importance in the decision making process, regarding health concerns. 63% of respondents indicate that they “would try a new product endorsed by a Nobel Laureate.” Twenty-five percent of additional respondents said that they “might try a new product endorsed by a Nobel Laureate.” Overall, an 88% “likely to purchase” rating for the Nobel Prize underscores the potential impact that an endorsement from a Noble Prize winner might have on the success of a new product launch.
Since 1901, the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine has been given to only 106 individuals. A small number of these men and women actively endorse and develop product formulas. The opportunity to create a partnership with one of the few distinguished by a Noble Prize is rare and exciting. Dr. Ignarro was the last Nobel Laureate to branch out into such an alliance – with the Herbalife Corporation – and their Cardio-Health products contributed heavily to their dramatic growth from a $1 billion to a $5 billion company in the past decade. Recognized for their discoveries in cardiovascular healthy, Dr. Murad and Dr. Ignarro were jointly awarded the Noble Prize in 1998. Dr. Murad is now committed to bringing his Nobel Prize winning science to the market. He will develop science-based products that encompass his over fifty years of research and discovery, and he is eager to find the perfect corporate partner.
Dr. Murad won the Nobel Prize for his work in the cardiovascular field, but his knowledge and expertise spans various health genres — including cardiology, obesity, metabolic syndrome, skincare, and more. By partnering with Brubaker, Dr. Murad will continue to pioneer the development of new health and wellness products, made available to consumers worldwide. He will also endorse existing products that meet his rigorous quality standards. Ultimately, the goal is to reach as many people as possible – utilizing the massive Nobel Prize sphere of influence in the arena of Health and Wellness.
