Dr. Francisco B. Elegado Awarded as UP Scientist


Dr. Francisco B. Elegado, Program Leader of the Food Safety and Functional Food Biotechnology Program, was awarded with the title of UP Scientist under the U.P. Scientific Productivity System last December 2013.  

The U.P. Scientific Productivity System (SPS) was approved by 1199th meeting of the Board of Regents on August 2005.
