KEY RESEARCH PROJECTS (2009-Present)

 

Project period

Research Topic

Jan 2013-Dec 2013 (1 year)

Mechanisms of Prolamin Protein Self-Assembly in Flexible Biomaterials. This was a multidisciplinary collaborative research bringing together various research groups from different departments, centres and units in the University of Pretoria and the industry including: Institute for Food, Nutrition and Well-being, Institute for Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Biomedical Research Centre, Department of Immunology, Department of Veterinary and Tropical Diseases, Department of Chemical Engineering, and AFGRI Ltd (which is a private business partner). This work was carried out through a Continuation Postdoctoral Fellowship funded by University of Pretoria.

2010-2012

Physico-chemical modification of kafirin microstructures for application as biomaterials. This project was funded by University of Pretoria Postgraduate Research Support Bursary and Ralph Waniska Sorghum and Millet Bursary.

2008 - 2009

Improvement in the protein quality of African sorghum foods through compositing with cowpea. Funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Grand Challenges 9 Africa Biofortified Sorghum (ABS) and University of Pretoria, South Africa.
