PhD Biotechnology

The program offers a dynamic research environment to produce qualified researchers, innovators, trainers and leaders of biotechnology with complementary skills in the area of business and entrepreneurship. Our PhD scholars are trained in a unique environment to interact and integrate skills arising from basic and advanced knowledge in biological, cellular and molecular processes and from industrial and applied biomedical aspects.

Outline

Biotechnology

Advances in medicine, greater longevity and a rapidly expanding world population continue to increase the numbers of people at the risk of infection. The situation compounded by the emergence of multi-drug resistant microbes and the lack of new clinically effective anti- infective agents compelled us to establish Microbiology section under FLS. Research within the Molecular Microbiology Group will be directed towards the acquisition of novel molecular and cellular insights into host pathogen interactions, quorum sensing and the evolution of virulence and drug resistance with a view to the discovery of new therapeutic and preventative strategies against Viral, Bacterial and Fungal Pathogens.
