Peering into microbes and pioneering molecular microbiology in the Philippines

Edwin N. Camaya and Evanjill Alcantara

There are people who are fortunate enough to know from the beginning what they would like to be for the rest of their lives. There are also many successful people who can point to an incident in their lives which determined the course of their careers or the direction their lives would take. Both of these would hold true in the case of Dr. Asuncion Karganilla-Raymundo, a pioneer in her field who is one of the most significant names in Philippine science today. Dr. Raymundo had wanted to be a schoolteacher like her mother and intended to pursue an Education degree. Instead, due to economic reasons, she was sent to study at the UP (University of the Philippines) College of Agriculture, where a sister had graduated and was then working. It did not mean the end of her dream to teach. It simply opened another door, another route to it.
