Italy offers partnership w/ DOST for researches on liver
by PNA release

A region in Italy, through its Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze, has offered a partnership with the Department of Science and Technology in liver research, Sec. Fortunato dela Peña said.

Dela Peña recently visited Trieste, a region in Italy, which he described as having a dense network of academic and scientific institutions.

“The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) is very famous (in Trieste). We already have a partnership with them, particularly (involving) UP (University of the Philippines),” dela Peña said.

TWAS is a global science academy promoting scientific capacity and sustainable development in developing countries.

Trieste, according to dela Peña, is a good place for science and technology as there are many institutions and startup companies there.

“We will focus on liver research. Jaundice, for instance, has a long-term effect on babies if not treated right away,” he said.

Jaundice is caused by a buildup of waste material in the blood, an inflamed liver or obstructed bile duct.

“Liver cancer is also among the leading causes of death in the Philippines,” dela Peña added.

The partnership of DOST and Italy further aims to develop a diagnostic device that could intervene in the development of liver cancer, the DOST chief said.

Two students from UP Manila will fly to Italy by November. They are currently taking PhD sandwich program, which means they could spend their PhD training abroad for about a year, dela Peña said.
