MESSAGE OF THE DIRECTOR
The NSRI, recognizing the importance of science and technology (S&T) in the advancement of our country has continued to support the research endeavors of the NSRI in-house researchers and faculty-scientists of the UP Diliman College of Science, in particular the Institute of Biology, Institute of Chemistry, Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology and the Institute of Mathematics. Through the years, the NSRI has supported projects on diverse fields of basic and applied sciences like environmental and medical microbiology, aquaculture, genetics, drug discovery, forensic biology, biochemistry, materials science, mathematics, etc. Indeed, the NSRI sees that all inclusive growth of S&T will lead to a better future for Filipinos. Our scientists have time and again proved how research and innovation can address cross-cutting issues which affect people’s lives. They do not lose sight of continually improving their craft with the goal of delivering quality research that would benefit the country.
On the other hand, the extension services provided by the four NSRI in-house laboratories to the public are truly commendable. They extend beyond borders to the point of reaching several sectors of the society including the indigenous communities of the country. Certainly, the NSRI with its clear vision and mission, lives up to its name as the National Center of Excellence in the Natural Sciences.
I hope that you will be pleased to look through this website which summarizes the scope of research and technical services of the NSRI. The achievements and accomplishments of the NSRI reflected in this website would not be possible without the unwavering support of the UP Diliman community.
