Innovative Research Laboratory

The Innovative Research Laboratory aims to conduct research to develop products and processes that address the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and the Philippines’ National Economic Agenda.

The United Nations Sustainability Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also called the Global Goals, were established by the United Nations in 2015 to urge everyone to work together to eliminate poverty, preserve the environment, and ensure that all individuals experience peace and prosperity by 2030.

The 17 SDGs are interconnected. They understand that actions taken in one aspect will have an impact on other areas, and they emphasize the need for development to consider the harmony between social well-being, economic growth, and environmental sustainability.

Here in the Innovative Research Laboratory, we believe that the SDGs are a powerful tool for change. They can help us build a better future for all, and they are a call to action for everyone to get involved.

The Philippine Development Plan 2023-2028

The PDP 2023-2028 is a roadmap for significant changes in the economy and society to boost job opportunities and reduce poverty by revitalizing economic growth. This growth should benefit everyone, creating a fair playing field where all Filipinos have equal chances and the necessary skills to thrive in a dynamic and globally competitive economy.

By conducting research that aligns with the PDP 2023–2028, the Innovative Research Laboratory aims to make significant contributions to the country’s development. Together, we can help improve the lives of Filipinos, boost economic growth, and create a more prosperous and equitable future for the country.

Troyss Pilapil’s Polyclonal anti-carabao antibody production for immunoassay applications

Carabaos (Bubalus bubalis) play a significant role in the Philippines’ rural economy. It is utilized as a source of draft power in farming, meat, and milk production. However, carabaos are also intermediate hosts for some parasites, such as Schistosoma japonicum. To capitalize on carabaos for their economic benefits, it is critical that we also develop vaccines to prevent carabaos from serving as conduits for spreading infectious parasites that can affect human health.
