A Manila Central University College of Dentistry team bagged the Grand Prize in the International Association for Dental Research – Southeast Asia (IADR-SEA) Dentsply Student Clinician Research Program Country Level Competition last March 22, 2016 at Dentsply Philippines Office in Makati City.

The MCU team composed of Alejandro Donesa, Jr., Airha Gay Daquiz, Patricia Dyan Ligon, Nelson Egwakhe and Princess Avigail Gapusan entered their research material entitled, “Flexural Strength of Heat Cured Acrylic Denture Base Reinforced with Water Hyacinth Fiber”. The MCU research advisers were Dr. Filipina Ng and Dr. Ruel Briones.

The students will represent the Philippines in the 94th General Session and Exhibition of the IADR on June 22 to 25, 2016 in Seoul, Korea.
