2011-11-11

 

Dr Chantel Swart, one of our Prestige Scholars.

Chantel Swart, one of the Prestige Scholars of the University of the Free State (UFS), received the South African Society for Microbiology (SASM) award for best Ph.D. at a gala dinner in Cape Town this week.

Her Ph.D. was about her important breakthrough in the use of nanotechnology in biological and medical research. The title is The influence of mitochondrial inhibitors on zoospore and ascospore development.

According to Prof. Lodewyk Kock, who was her study leader, assisted by two co-supervisors, Chantel’s achievements would not have been possible without the collaboration of Proff. Hendrik Swart (Physics) and Pieter van Wyk (Microscope Centre), both from the UFS.

Chantel’s award follows on invitations she has received to international conferences in Beijing (Medichem 2011) and later in November 2011 to Philadelphia (Biotechnology 2011).
