Dr. Waren Baticados is recognized for his significant contributions in the area of molecular research and detection of significant animal diseases caused by protozoans and rickettsia specifically trypanosomosis, babesiosis, neosporosis, and ehrlichiosis. These have worldwide importance especially in the tropics including the Philippines. His works therefore have contributed to a better understanding on how the parasite evades the host’s immune response and prompted rapid diagnosis for timely and proper intervention against such diseases cited.

Dr. Julius M. Basilla is recognized of his outstanding work in the area of number theory, which includes development of algorithms for determining the solution of certain Diophantine equations and the development of algorithms that led to understanding further the structure of the ideal class group of quadratic fields. His contributions to class field and the theory of elliptic curves and their applications to cryptography bring these difficult areas within the reach of graduate students and young mathematicians studying these cutting-edge research topics

Dr. Supachai Basit, is recognized for his important contributions in the field of President of the Philippine Society of Microbiology, Inc. (PSM) recounted incidents when local communities contracted waterborne and foodborne diseases caused by contaminants in food and beverages. “The provincial government of Catanduanes declared a state of calamity in the municipality of Virac last June because of a cholera outbreak while hundreds of Laguna residents were hospitalized because of typhoid fever in 2008,” Dr. Basit said. Dr. Basit said food and beverage manufacturing companies in the country must strictly comply with Good Maufacturing Practices (GMP), to ensure adequate cleaning and sanitation. They should also undergo Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification to ensure consumers that the food they eat is safe and clean. He thanked 3M Philippines for continuing to hold food safety seminars to educate those in food production and the food and beverage industry about proper food safety standards. 3M Philippines Food Safety Division meanwhile showcased at the seminar its 3M Molecular Detection System (3M MDS), a rapid detection system which combines two unique technologies—isothermal DNA amplification and bioluminescence detection—to offer the specificity and sensitivity needed to detect pathogens (Salmonella, E. coli O157–including H7 and Listeria).
