The South African National Research Foundation’s latest cohort of A-rated scientists is dominated by the country’s two top-ranked universities: Cape Town and the Witwatersrand.
The latest group of A-rated researchers was announced during the NRF awards on 26 September. A-ratings are given to “leading international researchers”. A total of 25 researchers received a first-time or renewed A-rating in the latest round.
The winners include well-known researchers Glenda Gray, the president of the South African Medical Research Council, and Kelly Chibale, founder of the Drug Discovery and Development Centre at UCT.
