I met Dr. Ramon Cabaños Barba and his colleague Lilian Pateña during interviews for the book "Ten Outstanding Filipino Scientists."
Dr. Barba, adjunct professor at the Institute of Biological Science at UP Los Baños, is the person responsible for the flowering of our famous Philippine mango all year round.
But Barba, a generous scientist, allowed free use of the technology and did not enforce his patents.He told me once that he went into science for the sheer love of it; his actions supported his words.
Barely two years after publication, his technology has become standard not only in our country, but also internationally.In fact, the Mexican ambassador personally came to Los Baños to request for Barba's paper.Barba's ingenious method has not been replaced or improved upon after more than 30 years.
Born on Aug. 31, 1939 in San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte, Barba has a bachelor's degree in agronomy from UPLB, and a master's and a doctorate in horticulture from the University of Georgia and the University of Hawaii, respectively.He has received numerous awards-including Outstanding Young Men, Rizal Pro Patria Presidential Award, National Research Council of the Philippines Award-and is a member of international and national honor societies.
Congratulations!May other scientists be inspired by their spirit of service. (INQ7)
