Cruz, a biochemist who has done research in toxic peptides from the venom of fish-hunting Conus marine snails; and Academician Marco Nemesio "Coke" Montano, formerly of the Marine Science Institute. The scientists had a quick tour of the Administration Building and the Oblation Plaza, the College of Science and Math. to view the laboratories and the landscape statues, and the upcoming Sports Complex grounds. At the CSM statue grounds Dr. Gomez pulled up an African fountain tree seedling that he described as an invasive plant, and pointed out the sprouting flame tree seedlings that he said needed relocating.          

The scientists were accompanied by DOST-11 personnel and NAST Executive Director Luningning Samarita-Domingo. They were met in UP Mindanao by School of Management Dean Larry Digal, Assoc. Prof. Ruth Gamboa (Dept. of Bio. Sci. & Envir. Studies), and PRO Rene Estremera.
