  1. 1. By Prof. Liwayway Memije-Cruz Famous Filipinos in the Field of Science
  2. 2. Lee-Chua (2000) identified 10 outstanding Filipino scientists who have made significant contributions in Philippine science. These scientists are also famous abroad in different science disciplines: agriculture, mathematics, physics, medicine marine science, chemistry, engineering and biology.
  3. 3. Dr. Ramon Cabanos Barba was named a National Scientist of the Philippines in 2014 for inventing a way to induce flowering in mango trees regardless of season, boosting the local mango industry.
  4. 4. • Dr. Josefino Cacas Comiso: NASA’s Filipino physicist • he has studied many polar processes and was among the first researchers to report dramatic changes in the Arctic sea ice cover and accelerated warming at high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere. • He is a recipient of the NASA Exceptional Achievement in Science Medal (one of the most prestigious award given to a NASA scientist) and many other awards,.
  5. 5. Dr. Jose Bejar Cruz known internationally in the field of engineering and for outstanding contributions to the field of automatic control in research, teaching, and service.
  6. 6. • Dr. Lourdes J. Cruz is lauded for her research on Conus geographus, a marine snail found in the Philippines. • Working alongside fellow experts, she studied the properties of the snail’s venom, which were largely unknown at the time. • Their research paved the way toward finding practical uses for conotoxins, leading to breakthroughs in neuroscience and medicine.
  7. 7. • Dr.Fabian Millar Dayrit is known for his phytochemical work for the development of lagundi as part of the National Integrated Research Program on Medicinal Plants. • He has worked on other important natural products, including medicinal plants, coconut oil, and carrageenan. He is currently focused on the development of standardization and profiling methods for medicinal plants.
  8. 8. Dr. Rafael D. Guerrero was recognized because of his scientific and technical contributions to the growth of Sex Reversal and Hatchery Techniques that help the commercial fabrication of high yielding market-size tilapia in the Philippines and other nations.
  9. 9. • Dr. Enrique Mapua Ostrea Jr. pioneered the use of meconium in the testing the mother’s abuse of drugs during the course of pregnancy. • a Filipino medical doctor known for his researches in pediatrics.
  10. 10. Dr. Lilian F. Patena develops tissue culture for garlic production.
  11. 11. Dr. Mari-Jo Ruiz is known locally and internationally as an expert in graph theory and operations research, and her expertise is valued not only in the academe but in different industries and sectors as well.
  12. 12. • Dr. Gregory L. Tangonan Specialties: • Innovation and Technology • Intellectual property strategies for innovators • International engineering projects in smart energy solutions and sustainable environment and environmental monitoring. • High Technology Competitiveness Analysis and Leap-frog Strategies for developing countries.
  13. 13. • Dr. Caesar A. Saloma received the Galileo Galilei Award from the International Commission for Optics in recognition of his significant contributions in the field of optics that were accomplished under comparatively unfavorable conditions. • He is the first scientist from an ASEAN member country to receive the Galileo Award.
  14. 14. • Dr. Edgardo D. Gomez is known for his pioneering works and invaluable contributions to marine biology, • Gomez led the world’s first national-scale assessment of damage to coral reefs, work which led to him being conferred the title of National Scientist of the Philippines in 2014.
  15. 15. • Dr. William G. Padolina, professor and academician, is the current president of the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). • His professional career is truly a rich convergence of his roles as scientist, teacher, researcher, administrator, and policy maker.
  16. 16. • Dr. Angel Alcala is a world-renowned Filipino ecologist and biologist with more than 30 years of contributions to the field of conservation biology. • He was the first scientist to comprehensively study the reptiles and amphibians of the Philippines, and his research led to the identification of more than 50 new species. • He was named a National Scientist of the Philippines in 2014 for his research into Philippine amphibians and reptiles, as well as the conservation of marine- protected areas
