Division of Medical Microbiology
We focus on operational research that improves the diagnosis of infectious diseases, with a preference for projects that have a clear relevance to the health needs of the Western Cape community.
Our ability to embark on new projects depends on the following factors:
- Adequate clinical material should be available.
- For student projects, our senior staff must have the capacity to provide adequate supervision.
- The project must have the potential to secure funding from the NHLS, NRF or other funding agencies.
We successfully collaborate with many divisions / departments / institutions, and interdisciplinary research projects are encouraged.
