Pinoy scientists call on PGMA

Manila (6 May) -- Filipino International awardees in science and technology presented yesterday (May 5) to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo their awards that brought honor to the country.

The awardees who called on President Arroyo were Dr. Lourdes Cruz, Dr. Virgilio Malang, Yasmin Esperitu Malang and Engineer John Judilla.

"We are proud to present this award to the President," said Dr. Cruz, the first Filipino winner in the prestigious L'Oreal-Unesco award for her discovery of the marine snail toxin which can serve as powerful tool to study brain function.

Judilla is the lead developer of the mechanical anti-terrorist robot or MAC which won in the first World Cup for Computer-Implemented Inventions held in China in 2008.

The MAC's capability is to detect, diffuse, retrieve, and dispose explosives. The device is already being utilized by the Makati city police.

Malang, who came with his wife Yasmin, invented a light beer fortified with multi vitamins. His invention paved the way for health conscious individuals to have an alternative to regular beer.

The vitamin beer won the gold medal in the prestigious genius Europe inventions fair in 2004

Malang also won the bronze medal in the 2008 first international inventor's day convention in Bangkok.

According to Cruz the President vowed to give additional support for the projects of all the award winners. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
