Vatican City, July 30 (CNA) The Holy See on Friday named Taiwan's former Vice President Chen Chien-jen as ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, making him the second Taiwanese to receive the honor after Nobel Prize winner Lee Yuan-tseh.

The Holy See announced the appointment on its news bulletin, which also provided a profile of Chen, a devout Catholic who received his Ph.D. in human genetics and epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University in the United States after studying at National Taiwan University.
