BEIJING, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Qinghai Spring Medicinal Resources Technology Co., Ltd. (Qinghai Spring, 600381.SH) recently announced that it has hired two Nobel Prize winners, Ferid Murad and Arieh Warshel, as chief scientists for the company's liquor brand TingHua.

Born in the U.S. state of Indiana in 1936, Ferid Murad was a co-winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for discovering "nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system," according to the official website of Nobel Prize.

Murad said that by using interdisciplinary scientific methods, he will guide the team to study and verify wider application of substances such as nitric oxide in daily life circumstances including liquor making.

Meanwhile, Warshel believes that the scientific research results achieved by his team will provide multidimensional references for further improvements in the brewing technology of Chinese liquor including TingHua baijiu.
