Dean Francis Aldrine Uy among this year's Asian Scientist 100 list

For this year, eight Filipino scientists were recognized as part of the much-coveted list. To qualify for the Asian Scientist 100, "the honorees must have won a national or international prize in 2020," according to Asian Scientist Magazine.

"Alternatively, the honoree must have a significant accomplishment in scientific discovery or leadership that benefits academia or industry."

"It is now clearer than ever that science – and scientists – are what will help us overcome challenges like COVID-19 and longer-term issues like climate change," said Rebecca Tan, editor-in-chief of Asian Scientist Magazine.

Dean Uy was the receipient of the 2020 David M. Consunji Award for Engineering Research for his engineering and research projects.

Congratulations Dean Uy and more success in the future!
