My name is Johannes Mthembu from Mtubatuba, Kwazulu Natal. I have recently completed my honours in Genetics with the UKZN. With love and Commitment, I would like to further my studies by doing a Masters in Medical Sciences. I require this course in order to do a 6 months internship and register with the HPCSA. However, my financial resources are constraining me. I am looking for partial or full funding to cover my expenses. Any assistance will be highly appreciated.
Due to my family background and financial constraint are limiting me to further achieve this goal. I am currently registered with the UKZN but I have no funding to support my studies. My research project is based in TB bio-marker discovery with the ultimate goal of identifying biomarkers and targets for the design of TB diagnostics, drugs and vaccines.
My campaign is open up until I get an assistant. However, I am requesting immediate assistance regarding accommodation and living expenses.
I am requesting funding to a total of R76 395. From this R76 395 ; R38 325 is going to be used for residence; R30 070 is going to be used towards tuition fee and R8000 is going to be used for living expenses
This campaign will basically assist me in conducting my research on Tuberculosis as it appears to be a global health burden that causes close to 1.3 million death per year. The significance of this study will be in the validation of adhesins as targets for TB diagnostics, drug and vaccine design, as well as the elucidation of these adhesins in the pathogenicity of M.tuberculosis.
*Funds for tuition and residence will be paid directly to the relevant organisation*
