The trainees were divided into four groups for the laboratory courses namely Group A (Model Organisms), Group B (Bioimaging), Group C (Biomics and Structural Biology) and Group D (Virology and Cancer). Ms. Juanico was assigned to work on the zebrafish model in the laboratory of Dr. Bon-Chu Chung.

Aside from Ms. Juanico, three Filipino trainees from University of the Philippines Diliman also participated in the training namely Maria Karmella Apaya, Ian Harvey Arellano and Ruth Marian Guzman.
