The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) had recently green-lit funding worth One Hundred Twenty-Six Thousand, Six-Hundred Eighty-Eight and seventy-five centavos (₱126,688.75) for research on Philippine medicinal plants and its components in the mitigation of SARS-CoV-2.

The study aims to synthesize and compile Philippine medicinal plants with inhibitory properties against SARS-COV-2 and other viruses, and to provide the framework for proactive investments in researches based on Philippine medicinal plant-derived vaccines or drugs to treat COVID-19 within the course of six (6) months.

The grant will be utilized to obtain the necessary provisions, supplies and materials for the conduct of systematic review.

Leading the study is Dr. Genelyn G. Madjos, an Associate Professor II in the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) of the Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) in Zamboanga City. 

The grant was awarded by the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) through the Zamboanga Consortium for Health Research and Development – Regional Research Fund (ZCHRD-RRF).
