FABI-5.jpg

A celebration was held at FABI on 6 February to mark the first publication in an ISI Rated Journal by five members of the TPCP research team. FABIANs Katrin Fitza, Angelica Marsberg de Villiers, Gabriella Carstensen, Siphatele Sibanda and Zander Human are all PhD candidates, and their first publications mark a significant achievement in the career of these young researchers. The cornerstone upon which FABI is built is research excellence, and publishing in ISI-rated journals is one measure of this excellence. Furthermore, learning to communicate your research findings to the international scientific community is an important step in the training of any post-graduate student.
