Is malunggay seed oil extract useful for superficial wound healing? Is there a correlation between parenting styles and the academic performances of students? How do Physical Therapy students manage academic stress? Is there a relationship between parents’ profile and their family size?

These were the questions raised and answered in the researches presented by students from the various academic programs during the 5th Annual Student Research Forum on January 24, held at the De La Salle Villarosa Convention Hall.

The annual forum is a brainchild of the Center for Academic Health Sciences Research (CAHSR) of the Research Division to encourage DLSHSI students to turn in quality research work as only the best papers are chosen for presentation in the forum.
