About PHBRIL

Helping Improve Health for All Filipinos

The Public Health Biology Research and Innovations Laboratory (PHBRIL) conducts biological research activities that focus on the diagnosis, control, and prevention of communicable and noncommunicable diseases affecting Filipinos.

Environmental Monitoring

We investigate interactions among hosts, pathogens, and the environment to formulate public health strategies in partnership with local officials and health authorities.

Disease Biomarkers

We are examining morphological and molecular signatures that can be developed as non-invasive biomarkers for detecting diseases in the early stages, predicting treatment response, and prognosticating disease outcomes.

Epidemiological Survey

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

Our goal is to help improve the health of all Filipinos

through relevant and ethical research and extension projects.
