Faculty of Health Sciences Research Day bigger and better! - 29/08/2014
This year’s eagerly anticipated Faculty of Health Sciences’ Research Day at the University of Pretoria (UP) was an eclectic mix of research, education and innovation. The event afforded researchers, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students from UP the opportunity to present their research findings to the Faculty. Participants presented their endeavours in the form of oral and/or poster presentations.
Harnessing the power of the sun - 29/08/2014
Prof Ken Craig and his research group in the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering are focusing on the sun and the energy it can provide us. Although the familiar domestic solar panels and solar geysers are becoming more widespread, these provide only local power or energy and are not suitable for large-scale power generation. Therefore, Prof Craig decided to focus on concentrated solar power or CSP.
UP specialist registrar awarded prestigious NIH fellowship - 29/08/2014
Dr Likhona Masika, a specialist registrar in UP’s Department of Chemical Pathology, has been awarded a prestigious two-year fellowship in Clinical Chemistry at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the USA. The NIH is part of the US Department of Health and Human Services and is the world's largest biomedical research agency.
A new generation of research-driven leaders in agriculture - 28/08/2014
South Africa is a fertile land, so how is it that we have to date been unable to effectively feed our people? According to Mr Shaun Berry of BASF-Becker Underwood, a company involved in a joint research grant partnership with the University of Pretoria and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), not enough research is currently being done to develop new technology for South African farmers.
Ethical Research Workshop - 25/08/2014
On 18 August 2014, Professor Stephanie Burton, Vice-Principal for Research and Postgraduate Education at UP, hosted a seminar focusing on ethically responsible research. The theme of the seminar was ‘Human research participants and the ethically responsible advancement of science’. A paper was presented at the event by Dr Felice J Levine, Executive Director of the American Educational Research Association.
