Titus Mashilo was recently awarded the Max Price and Deborah Posel Postgraduate Scholarship which was established to provide support to exceptional and talented South African and permanent resident postgraduate students to pursue study and career paths as academics and specialists in their fields by supporting the pipeline towards doctoral studies.
Justine first became involved in the UCT Division of Chemical Pathology during her second year of medical school, when she began attending the academic meetings in the division. She later joined the division formally, as a PhD student, and worked on a lipidology project under the co-supervision of Prof. David Marais and Dr. Dee Blackhurst. When a registrar post became available in the division 2 years later, Justine was invited to apply, and decided to convert her PhD to an MMed and embark on this adventure.
