UKZN’s School of Chemistry and Physics approached CAPRISA with the request to meet with Abdool Karim and CAPRISA Director Professor Salim Abdool Karim, to personally congratulate Professor Quarraisha Abdool Karim on her election to serve as the seventh President of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and to gain insight into CAPRISA’s core research programmes.
