Dr. Roman L. Kintanar is recognized for his important contriibutions in the field of was appointed Director of the Weather Bureau in 1958 at the age of 29, the youngest ever to hold the post anywhere in government service. He is the first Filipino to serve as President of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) from 1979 to 1983. He was one of the movers behind the creation of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee Secretariat in 1986 and served with distinction as Pacific/WMO Coordinator. For his achievements and contributions in the field, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) honored him by naming an asteroid after him. Asteroid Kintanar, measuring four to nine kilometer in diameter, orbits the sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Dr. Kintanar is recognized for his research on cytoplasmic inheritance of hypersensitivity to a disease in maize, a discovery that has created an awareness among biologists of the importance of genetic diversity as a weapon against environmental adversities. Dr. Lantican's efforts in plant breeding, more specifically in the development of varietal resistance and the improvement of plant structure and morphology, have paved the way for the release of outstanding varieties. These varieties are now being commercially grown by farmers in the Philippines, parts of Southeast Asia, East Asia and South Asia. The new plant structure developed in mungbean through his effort and that of his team has resulted in doubling of yields. The plant types evolved in the Philippines were heavily used as parents in the breeding program of the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC) in Taiwan.
