Division: Biological Sciences

Citation:

In recognition of his significant contributions in the molecular research and detection of significant animal diseases caused by Protozoans and Rickettsia specifically trypanosomosis, babesiosis, neosporosis, and ehrlichiosis which have worldwide importance especially in the tropics including the Philippines, using molecular techniques and biotechnology which prompted rapid diagnosis for timely and proper intervention against the diseases cited. His (and co-workers) twin works on the Trypanosoma congolense L3000 and the T. brucei rhodesiense have contributed to a better understanding on how trypanosomes, major human pathogens, evade the host’s immune responses. His recent studies on the livestock dilemmas in the country have established appropriate protocols on the quick diagnosis of infectious diseases through molecular detection, PCR, and recombinant DNA technology.
