The focus of this Chair, linked to the South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and analysis (SACEMA), is to provide a mechanistic modelling approach with more predictive strength to pharmaceutical drug and intervention steps,​ for individual and public health. The Chair’s core research efforts are in Computational Systems Biology; a combined experimental, modeling and theoretical approach to quantitatively understand the functional behavior of Biological Systems resulting from the characteristics of their components. Our main focus is on metabolism of human pathogens, such as Plasmodium falciparum, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and on modelling disease states such as type 2 diabetes and HIV pathogenesis at a whole body level.
