Robert F. Furchgott (born in 1916) of the SUNY Health Center, Brooklyn was co-recipient with Louis Ignarro and Ferid Murad of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998 for "discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system." Nitric oxide, they discovered, tells blood vessels to relax and widen, an effect which can help control blood pressure and combat male impotence. Their discoveries led to the development of Viagra.
