Affiliate membership is for researchers based at UCT, elsewhere than in the IDM complex, who seek supplementary membership of the IDM because their research interests align with the general focus and current activity areas of the IDM, for 3-year terms, which are renewable.
Research interests: HIV cohort and infectious disease epidemiology; operations research on service responses for priority health conditions; data harmonisation and linkage; and context-appropriate health information systems development.
He holds an honorary faculty position at UCL. Research interests: understanding how the malaria parasite deals with the large influx of haem associated with ingestion and degradation of haemoglobin in its digestive vacuole and the effects of antimalarials such as chloroquine, which inhibit this process.
Speciation and behaviour of free Fe III haem in aqueous solution. Interaction of Fe III haem with antimalarials and effects on haem in cultured parasites. Research interests: Production testing of microbial products including culturing, formulation, drying and shelf-life testing. Her current focus is on the development of probiotic products targeted at the treatment of bacterial vaginosis. His main research interests are in the therapeutic aspects of HIV-associated tuberculosis and drug-resistant tuberculosis, antiretroviral therapy in resource-limited settings, and the pharmacokinetics of antiretroviral and anti-tuberculosis drugs.
She participates in research projects across Africa, as well as in Asia and South America where a key interest is the support and mentoring of investigator-initiated pharmacology research projects.
