Partido State University to boost its research capability in Marine Science and its allied programs by hosting its first Balik Scientist
Pursuant to RA 11035 “Balik Scientist Act” administered by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Partido State University is fortunate to host its first Balik Scientist, Dr. Irene B. Rodriguez. The aim is to reinforce the research culture at PSU by capacitating faculty researchers with working skills along with Marine Biology and its allied programs and to promote sustainable utilization and management of coastal and marine resources. It will be attained by mentoring faculty researchers in packaging research proposals, developing publishable research-based manuscripts, and conceptualizing science-driven community extension projects that are relevant to the communities served by PSU. Dr. Rodriguez will also contribute to the network expansion of the University’s faculty researchers. It is expected that continuous exposure to the said network can further enhance the capacity of the faculty researchers in their respective fields of specialization.
