Herbanext Laboratories DOST 2016 Dungog S&T Awardee
At the DOST-6 S&T Stakeholders Night last Feb. 22, with Roselyn Cruz Usero. This is the last recognition I will ever receive from the DOST-6 as the Negros Island Region takes effect. I am deeply thankful to DOST-6 for all the support it has given me since 1997 from the aquaculture days to my current natprod ventures. Many many thanks to Dir. Rowen Gelonga, Emelyn Flores, Allan Francis Dara-ug, Eng. Zinnia Teruel, and to the rest of the DOST-6 family . These are some of the hardest working I know in government - I love these people. Was also delighted to meet Sec. Mario Montejo and was personally able to extend to him my gratitude for all his projects and programs in S&T that are now creating an impact in private sector. I am hopeful that the next DOST Secretary is as forward thinking and industry responsive as Sec. Montejo. Mabuhay ang DOST-6! Mabuhay ang DOST!
