Ms Sumari Venter
Biochemistry, Genetics and Microbiology
I completed my BSc undergraduate degree (2019) in Human Genetics at The University of Pretoria. This was the foundation where my love and curiosity for the field of Genetics and research started. I continued my research journey at UP and completed my BScHons in Genetics (2020). My Honours project focused on investigating potential genes involved in the host immune evasion strategy of the biocontrol agent Deladenus siricidicola under the supervision of Prof Bernard Slippers and Ms Alisa Postma Smidt.
I am currently an MSc Genetics student where I will be continuing and building on my Honours project as part of the TPCP research group.
