INSTITUTE FOR MOLECULAR GENETICS, PARASITOLOGY AND VECTOR-BORNE DISEASES (IMGPVBD)
Center Director: Dr. Adrian Ybanez
Latest innovations in several scientific fields, including animal science, veterinary science, and biology, have been employing molecular-level technology. The use of molecular approaches has significantly improved the quality of research outputs, which benefited the community in developing better diagnostic approaches, increasing agricultural productivity, recommending measures for human and animal health policy improvement, and improving the quality of life. Vector-borne and protozoan diseases are among the top priority concerns because of the possible economic impact on the agricultural sector and health implications on humans.
Experts on the vector-borne and protozoan disease and facilities equipped with molecular capabilities are limited on the regional and national levels. Despite its potential high impact on the livestock industry and even human health, this has not been given wide attention. These have precluded the advancement of several related research studies, which could have also helped enhance academic instruction, community extension, industry linkages, and international collaborations. Such studies may include the prevalence of the studied diseases in humans and animals, the development of disease diagnostic kits, parasite biodiversity, and natural product innovation against these diseases. Thus, the creation of the Institute for Molecular Parasitology and Vector-borne Diseases that is highly equipped and accessible in the region would be incredibly beneficial.
With the establishment of the center, it is expected that several relevant scientific advances and publications will be attained. The local experts will also be able to continue their scientific advancements. They will be able to collaborate with researchers from other local or regional institutions interested in molecular research. Students will be exposed to the latest technology and augment learning in actual laboratory exposure and experiments. In this manner, the scientific and academic community in the region will be greatly benefitted.
