The inclusion of the Filipino in the list of “100 outstanding thinkers and innovators from Asia who are pushing the envelope with their research” is seen in the context of making Asia the striking center of radical research and development efforts.
Asia Scientist Magazine reports that Asia currently supplies the world a quarter of its publications written by Asians now numbering a third of all scientific researchers worldwide.
