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.
