Helping Improve 

  Health of All Filipinos

About PHBio

The Public Health Biology Laboratory (PHBio) engages in biological research endeavors aimed at diagnosing, controlling, and preventing diseases that impact the Filipino population.

disease epidemiology

We provide baseline and updated epidemiological data on neglected tropical diseases and rare genetic disorders, serving to inform health program managers and policy makers.

non-invasive biomarkers

We investigate morphological and molecular characteristics that could be developed as non-invasive biomarkers. These biomarkers aim to detect diseases in their early stages, forecast treatment responses, and predict disease outcomes.

environmental conditions

We study the interactions among hosts, pathogens, and the environment to develop public health strategies collaboratively with local officials and health authorities.

Our goal is to enhance the health outcomes of all Filipinos by translating
laboratory-derived evidence and tools into practical applications for public health.
