Dr. Reyes is a well-respected scientist working in the field of cytogenetics, the study of chromosomes, and is a former faculty member, dean and chancellor of UP Manila, and once served as faculty regent of the UP Board of Regents.
     Dr. Reyes gave lectures on national laws and guidelines in research ethics, principles of good research practice, and responsibilities of stakeholders. Prof. Myfel Joseph Paluga, chair of the Department of Social Sciences also spoke on ethical considerations with research involving indigenous peoples.
     On day 2, Dr. Reyes talked about the ethical review process. Participants were enjoined to give inputs for the operationalization of ethics review in UP Mindanao.
     Chancellor Sylvia Concepcion, in her memorandum to faculty members, said, “This is the best time to craft our own ethical review process reflective of UP Mindanao’s requirements/needs.”
     This seminar-workshop is part of the R&D Capability Building Workshop Series 2015 conducted by the Office of Research, which aims to improve capabilities and processes in the university and, in the long run, increase research productivity.
