To Those Asking on How they Can Help in the COVID-19 National Health Emergency:
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) laboratories of the University of the Philippines are tasked to handle the sequencing of COVID-19 samples for the next two (2) weeks, in coordination with the health workers from UP Manila National Institutes of Health, to provide our scientists with crucial scientific information to mitigate the spread of the disease.
In our effort to continually protect the PGC skeletal work force during this national health emergency, we will accept PPE donations, such as N95 masks, surgical masks, disposable impermeable laboratory gowns and caps, face shields, and shoe covers to replenish our supplies. You may drop off your donations from Monday to Friday at 8am to 5pm at the lobby of the PGC Building located at A. Ma. Regidor St., National Science Complex, UP Diliman Campus, Quezon City.
