Prof. Francis S. Legario, a faculty of the Natural Science Department, College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), is one of the six qualifiers of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Newton Agham PhD Scholarship grant at the University of Sterling, United Kingdom. The scholarship is a collaboration program of the DOST-Science Education Institute and the British Council.

Prof. Legario will start his PhD in Aquaculture at the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Sterling on May 1, 2017.

Based on his answer to the questions for Newton Agham Programme grant awardees, his proposed PhD research will be on climate change and environmental diseases, specifically on thermal influence in microbial pathogenicity in aquaculture systems. The study will uncover the relationship between water temperature changes and the ability of bacterial pathogens to cause disease outbreaks in aquaculture species especially in the tropical setting.

According to him, the relevance of his research to the Philippines’ economic development and/or social welfare contributes towards food security, employment and socio-economic status in the Philippines since aquaculture is a livelihood in many areas of the country.

The award entitles Mr. Legario to funding and consumables cost from Newton Agham Programme of L65, 200 and Php 4.5 million from the DOST.
