Amongst nearly 25 quantitative research presenters from different parts of the Philippines and Asia vying for the award, Barluado, who earned an Honours Degree in Biotechnology from Flinders University in Australia on a scholarship grant, aced the award criteria of research relevance and impact, technical soundness, overall poster appearance, oral presentation skills of presenter, and originality.
