DNA Analysis Laboratory at the UP NSRI on its 20th Year

2016 marks the 20th year since the establishment of the DNA Analysis Laboratory at the Natural Sciences Research Institute, University of the Philippines, Diliman campus (UPD-NSRI-DAL).

On 16 May 1996, UP President Dr. Emil Javier signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Philippine Vice President Joseph Ejercito Estrada who was the Chair of the Presidential Anti-Crime Commission (PACC), formally creating a laboratory that was mandated to pioneer the entry of DNA forensics into the Philippines. 

The commemoration of such an important historic event that marked the marriage of science and the legal system, provides a good opportunity to look back into the last twenty years when rigorous research, wide-ranging extension work and committed scientists contributed to the current state of DNA Forensics in the Philippines.
