dc.description.abstract Dr. George Chiou was born in Taoyuan, Taiwan during the Japanese occupation before World War II, one of eleven children in his family. He worked several jobs growing up to support himself and his family. He studied pharmacology for his undergraduate studies and immigrated to the United States for graduate school where he engaged in research and eventually became the first department head of the pharmacy school at the Texas A&M School of Medicine. An autonomic pharmacologist, Dr. Chiou discovered Timolol, a widely used glaucoma drop medication that propelled the market for eye drop medication. He has two daughters, and four grandchildren. Although Dr. Chiou retired from Texas A&M, Dr. Chiou continues to conduct research on diabetic retinopathy in Taiwan.
