Researchers, mostly from the University of the Philippines, have pointed out that over-extraction of groundwater by hot spring resorts in Calamba and Los Baños in Laguna Province can cause a variety of problems, such as a drop in groundwater and competition for water supply in the near future. Will Laguna’s hot springs also “lose steam” or cool down due to over-consumption?

The workshop aims to bring the IBC’s workshops to UP. It is envisioned to improve the skills and knowledge of UP researchers in current methodologies in protein research. It will also provide the venue for scientific interactions/matching exercises between the two universities, which will initiate collaborative projects/exchanges and other future plans/activities.

  Increasing the technical proficiency of our young scientists and graduate students benefits our University’s research efforts in drug discovery. Local opportunities to learn about current experimental techniques and methods relating to protein expression, purification, and characterization are lacking and often limited to small research laboratories. The AS-Institute of Biological Chemistry (IBC) have established and […]
