Tuklas Lunas Development Center (TLDC)

Tuklas Lunas Laboratory

One of the TLDCs in the country initiated and funded by the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). The Center is envisioned to become a natural products research hub in drug discovery and development of new drugs in the country, utilizing indigenous resources from the region. Thus, TLDC aims to unify bio-prospecting, biological screenings and related researches done at MMSU to strengthen the center and achieve its vision.
