Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Division of Molecular B​iology and Human Genetics


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​VuyoLab is focused on the development of antimycobacterial biopharmaceuticals, which could be either small molecules or polypeptides (e.g bacteriocins) for application in extrapulmonary TB with emphasis on the central nervous system. Our approach in drug development is interdisciplinary and incorporate semi-synthetic chemistry, computational chemistry, nanochemistry and organometallic chemistry. The last two are in collaboration with Drs Rehana Malgas-Enus and Prinessa Chellan from the Chemistry Department, Stellenbosch University.
