In the daily scientific activities of this research group, the scientific insights and methods of Professor Sir Sam Edwards are very frequently employed. We use his theoretical tools when studying networks or topology of polymers, and the understanding of the dynamics of polymers is forever influenced by his magnificent insights. We remember a truly great… Read More »
Dr Ben Loos (Dept of Physiological Sciences at Stellenbosch University) has a long-standing interest in the molecular mechanisms that control cell death susceptibility. His research centres around protein degradative mechanisms and their dynamics, transport and function of mitochondria along tubulin networks and their role in neuronal degeneration and migration. His research group utilizes in vitro… Read More »
Jacob Mohau Mateyisi graduated with a PhD in December 2014. The work in his dissertation covered the diffusion of particles in narrow, laterally coupled channels. Previously he worked on active networks, using a reversible formalism and the replica method to compute the network elasticity. Mohau has worked at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Muizenberg,… Read More »
