Dr. Rey Yunson Capangpangan, Associate Professor of the Caraga State University made the CARAGA proud when he receives the 1st place for Inter-regional Oral Paper Presentation (Professional Category) on the recent 10th Philippine National Health Research System Week Celebration on August 9-12, 2016 at the Citystates Asturias, Puerto Princesa Palawan.
This year’s celebration focuses on the role of research and innovation for the health and the environment.
Out of fifteen completed research papers submitted to the PCHRD for Oral Paper Presentation (Professional Category) and after various screening, the following were selected to present the results of their study in the said celebration:
1.) Detection and Sequential Enrichment of Glycopeptdes and Phosphopeptides as Cancer Biomarkers by Fuctionalized NH2/ZIC HILIC-type Magnetic Nanoprobes by Dr. Rey Capangpangan of CARAGA Region
2.) Isolation of the Cytotoxic, Angiogenic and Antitumor Compounds from Trichaleurina celebica by Dr. Maribel Matias of Region II
3.) Bioactive Constituents of Centrosema pubescens Benth. Inhibitory to Culex quinquefasciatus Larvae by Prof. Erwin C. Mina of Region III
4.) Modified Sheep Blood Agar-Based Medium as an Alternative Culture Media for the Cultivation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis by Dr. Narciso Tapia of Region VII

Even though concerns were raised by the judges for Dr. Capangapangan’s paper especially the cost which is the down part of the study and further questioned how the entire process be different from the classical way of determining biomarkers, and lastly about the specs for magnetic separation/ if sequential magnetization is done, the proponent well-defended his paper and takes home a total of P20, 000 cash prize for a truly deserved win.
