posted Jul 18, 2019, 8:07 AM by SLSU CAS

Mr. Wilfredo Barrera Jr., faculty-researcher under the BS Biology program, is one of only 50 researchers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to receive the ASEAN-India Research Training Fellowship this year to do research for six months in India.

Mr. Barrera will be working on expression analyses of zinc metabolism genes of biofortified rice lines at the ICAR-Indian Institute of Rice Research, under the supervision of Dr. C.N. Neeraja, Principal Scientist (Biotechnology) of the Crop Improvement Division. Just last year in November, Mr. Barrera has also received a scholarship grant to attend a summer school on Food Nutrition and Security at the University of Costa Rica.

The ASEAN-India Research Training Fellowship is a flagship funding program started by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under the ASEAN India Science and Development Fund, with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) as the implementation partner. 

The fellowship aims to support ASEAN young researchers to work at any of the Indian research/academic institutions. The opportunity was first made available to Southern Luzon State University-College of Arts and Sciences after having been invited to be part of the ASEAN University Network-India Innovation and Technology Summit in December, attended by Dean Mari Jane Lee and Dr. Shiela Manzanilla // CAS Web Development Team

Battle of the Neurons is an annual activity of the SLSU Haynayanon. This year, the students organized the 6th Battle of the Neurons with the theme, “The Genetic Drift”. It was held at the Audio-Visual Room, College of Engineering last November 17, 2017. Eleven team quizzers from different colleges joined the pool of the fittest. The master of ceremony, John Vincent G. Navalan, opened the program with doxology and national anthem followed by explaining the guidelines of the quiz bee. Ms. Kathleen O. Pornobi, BS Biology Chairperson, welcomed the quizzers and the quiz contest proper started with the help of the quizmaster, Mr. Wilfredo Barrera, Jr.. There were 37 questions divided into 10 easy, 10 average, 10 difficult and 7 questions for sudden death round, the newly added round that gives the thrill and excitement to the contestants and also to the audience. The sudden death round gave a sudden change in the ranking of the team quizzers. Team- BER got 143 points, Team Friends of Caesarxz got 153 points, Team Friends of Friends of Cesarxz got 168 points, which placed them at the 3rd, 2ndand 1stplace, respectively. Then the declared champion was Team SWS 1 from College of Teachers Education with a total score of 210.

The competition ended with awarding of the winners and giving of certificates to all the participating quizzers. Overall, the program ended successfully with everybody, being fed not just with food but also with knowledge. / Alyssa R. Abrigo, Education & Research Committee Head
