Dr. Lyre Anni E. Murao clocked her first day in the office as UP Mindanao’s new chancellor last March 1, 2022. 

Philippine Science High School Southern Mindanao Campus couldn’t be more proud of this achievement as Dr. Murao is actually from PSHS SMC Batch 92 (Pioneers) and was in fact awarded as the Most Outstanding Alumni for her batch. 

She is the sixth chancellor of UP Mindanao. She holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Medical Science in Infection Research conferred by Nagasaki University, Japan. She earned her Master of Science in Microbiology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and her BS Molecular Biology degree from the University of the Philippines-Diliman.

Congratulations Chancellor Lyre Anni E. Murao! The whole Pisay-SMC is very proud and is in full support of you.
