“As scientists, you are all responsible for the innovations that uplift our people’s lives, as well as for the growth of global knowledge,” UP Executive Vice President Teodoro J. Herbosa said. He added, “I also believe that UP scientists are the best exponents of a manner of thinking sorely needed today – one that elevates evidence over opinion, values clarity over obfuscation, and that is committed to the truth above all else.”
