SA Research Chair in Mycobactomics

The research aim of this Chair held by Prof Samantha Sampson, in the Department of Molecular Biology and Human Genetics, is to perform an in-depth characterisation of clinical strains of M. tuberculosis and other mycobacterial species isolated from humans and animals on the African continent. Knowledge gained will support the goal of an improved understanding of mycobacterial biology aiding the design of effective tuberculosis vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
