This month, we focused our newsletter on KRISP training the next generation of scientists and positions available for PhDs and Post-Doctoral fellows at a Flagship program of UKZN. We also highlight publications on TB next generation sequencing and diagnostics, ethics and trans-disciplinary perspectives of HIV research and new phylodynamics models to characterize viral outbreaks.
This issue's highlights are:
