Eight Filipino scientists were recognized as among the top 100 scientists in Asia by a prestigious publication. 

Dr. Rosalinda Torres was among the 8 researchers recognized in the Asian Scientist 100, for her work on the larvicidal ability of Philippine medicinal plants. 

Another Filipina, Marissa Paglicawan, was also recognized for her work on turning abaca or Manila hemp into an engineering material. 

Asian Scientist says that to be acknowledged on the list of top 100 researchers, a scientist must have received a national or international prize in 2018 for research, or made a significant scientific discovery or provided leadership in academia or industry.
