Health and Applied Sciences research day

The Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences held its 6th Annual Research Day under the theme: “Broadening Research Engagement to Foster Innovative Strategies Towards Development.”

Research is a key area for the University, and enormous efforts and investment have been put into setting up structures to create an enabling environment for researchers, both staff and students.

The Dean of the Faculty, Dr Sehaam Khan said that the theme is relevant and in line with the Institution’s theme for the year, which is “Reimagining University Engagement in the Knowledge Economy.”

Dr Khan added that: “This year, we solely focussed on local researchers rather than international ones, as was the case in the past. This is in effort to showcase our local skills. Recent PhD graduates and those that are about to complete their Doctoral studies were invited to present their research.”
Three different presentations were given on three different topics namely:

  • Assessment of Natural Radionuclide Distribution in Shore Sediment Samples Collected from Henties Bay Beach, Namibia.
  • The Functional Roles of HPV-11E6 and HPV18-E6 in Initiating Cellular Transformation.
  • In Vitro Susceptibility of Streptococcus Agalactiae Isolates from Pregnant Women to Indigenous and Conventional Antimicrobial Therapeutic Options.
