The field of immunology is a vast field with many focus points to suit a student's interest. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) research is an especially important topic due to our prevalence of TB in the Western Cape and the Stellenbosch University Immunology Research Group (SUN-IRG) has provided a good platform for me to be able to study this topic.  I completed my national diploma and B. tech degree in Biomedical Technology before beginning my working life in a diagnostic field.  My yearning to learn and study further brought me to the SUN-IRG group to complete my Master's degree in Molecular Biology and has opened up so many doors for me to continue my education and to be a part of a successful and ambitious group of like-minded people.  I pride myself on my association with this world class research group and look forward to my future as a researcher of Stellenbosch University.
