DST 2016 budget vote exhibit
CAPRISA, a designated DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in HIV Prevention was represented at the DST Budget Vote exhibition by research clinician, Dr Sharana Mahomed.
The theme of the exhibition, which was held at the Iziko museum, Parliament Gardens in Cape Town on the 19 April 2016, was “Innovation for sustainable local government and youth development”.
The CAPRISA stand focussed on the recent discovery of potent and broadly neutralising antibodies that has allowed exploration of passive immunisation as an alternative HIV preventative strategy.
