Filipino-American Baldomero Olivera, University of Utah molecular biologist, is Harvard Foundation's 2007 Scientist of the Year.
Olivera is best known for his groundbreaking research with neurotoxins produced by venomous cone snails, Conus, found in the tropical waters of the Philippines.His work has led to the discovery of the pain killer Ziconotide in the 1980s by Michael McIntosh, then barely out of high school and working with Olivera.
Olivera is a summa cum laude graduate from the University of the Philippines Medical School in Manila (1960).He moved to the US to take up his graduate degree in chemistry at the California Institute of Technology.
Olivera was in the Philippines recently as key speaker of the quarterly Innovation Forum organized by Ayala Foundation and Information Development Program.
Olivera said each cone snail has at least 700 compounds, each with a different potential medical use.He added his research involved only a few of the estimated 10,000 cone snail species found in Philippine waters.
"[The cone snail] is one of the least understood creatures of the sea but it may hold the key to solving many of today's diseases," Olivera said.Based on report by A. Villafrania, 07.09.07
