Dr. Sabico is the Chief Editor of the Prince Mutaib Chair for Biomarkers of Osteoporosis (PMCO) at KSU, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The award, selected among thousands of entries submitted, is the largest ever-recorded in the history of the congress, which is also the biggest clinical and research gathering in the field.
A multi-awarded Filipino young professional, Dr. Sabico was also a recipient of the 2016 Eli Lilly Scholarship Award given in Malaga, Spain. Adding up to his countless achievements, he is currently a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in Biomedical Sciences in Warwick University, United Kingdom.
