The BCHRD facilitated a two day write-shop for researchers in the region on November 14-15, 2012. Its main objective was to generate fundable research proposals that are reflective of the priority research agenda of the region.
The pre-workshop phase was highlighted by the presentation of the Research Agenda of Region V by R & D Chair Dr. Marlyn Daguno, to guide the participants on the research priorities of the region. Following the presentation were lectures on “Problem Conceptualization” and R & D Methodologies (Quantitative) including Basic Statistical Test and Analysis by Dr. Yolanda Castroverde, an R & D member, and Dr. Maridel Borja, from University of the Philippines, Manila.
Three (3) research proposals were presented and evaluated by the R & D committee (Dr. Marlyn Daguno and Prof. Elma Peralta), with Dr. Borja, as guest evaluator. The proposals were as follows: 1) Urban Wastes and Environment: Effect on People’s Health by Dr. Yolanda Castroverde of University of Nueva Caceres, 2) “Follow-on” and “Toddler Formula” Using Adlai Grains by Dr. Janet Recierdo of Bicol University, and 3) Wound Healing Properties of Guyabano Leaves (Anona muricata Linn) and Malunggay Root (Moringa oleifera) Extract: A Product Development by Dennis Gogola of Bicol University.
The research entitled Urban Wastes and Environment: Effect on People’s Health by Dr. Yolanda Castroverde was technically approved by R & D committee and was submitted to the Bicol Medical Center, Naga City for ethical review. The ERC of the consortium had already reviewed it ethically. This proposal was submitted to the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development for funding under the Regional Research Fund (RRF).
