About Reynaldo L. Garcia

I earned my PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the Australian National University and my life science-MBA (MPhil in Bioscience Enterprise) from the University of Cambridge in England. I took up postdoctoral fellowships in France (Hopital de la Pitie-Salpetriere in Paris), New Zealand (University of Otago Medical School), the United States (Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine), and England (University College London), before being appointed senior scientist at Cancer Research UK’s Beatson Institute in Scotland. I moved back to the Philippines in 2010 and have been running my laboratory at the University of the Philippines Diliman ever since. 

Main interests of my lab include the functional characterization of novel mutations in EGFR pathway genes in late- and young-onset colorectal cancer, the role of non-coding RNAs (miRNAs, lncRNAs and circular RNAs) and exosomes in cancer, as well as orthogonal assays to eliminate artefactual drug bioactivities.
