In June 2002 wehave disclosed an innovation from the Department of Radiography:postural design to facilitate radiographic studies of the hip and fermoral neck. Vaccine development in the areas of rotavirus induced diarrhoeal disease and hepatitis-B promise a reduction in morbidity and mortality The impact these developments are likely to have will be felt by the developing countries and may reduce the hopelessness associated with malignancy of the liver, as there seems to be evidence of a relationship between hepatitis-B infection and hepatocellular carcinousa. The renewed focus is research support from the Departments of Health and Arts Culture,Science and Technology has encouraged new areas of research activity across disciplines bringing expertise and synergy to produce improved results. Interinstitutional collaboration has had the effect on internationalization of research and brings Universities in Africa to work together in support of the new partnership in African Development. We continue to increase the number and quality of work of our postgraduate students. The support that the Research Directorate gets from the faculty based Research, Ethics and Publications Committee, Higher Degrees Committees, those individuals and departments that assist with Research Methodology Courses and statistical support is greatly appreciated. 4

  21. 21. PREFACE The Faculty of Medicine has once again demonstrated a significant increase in their researchOutput in the year 2001. Credit for leading to these achievements in this re- port should go toThe various heads of departments, chairpersons of departmental re- search committee and to all Researchers.During the 2001 period the Faculty Re- search Ethics and Publication Committee approved 121Research protocols, 74 of those were Post-graduate projects. There is no doubt that theIntroduction of compul- sory dissertation to the master’s degree by course work is now paying off..A challenge to promote research among undergraduate students still remains especially with theMedical students. Hopefully the new curriculum will help address these challenges in the comingYears. The other challenge is recruiting staff members not yet partici- pating in research to get started.Publications of research articles in SAPSE accredited journals are one of the benchmarks of Research output in an institution. It is exciting to see that there were an increased number of theseArticles in the year 2001 (about 44) compared to the previous year. The challenge still remains tocrease the number of publications within the faculty. One can only hope that more articles will be real- ized from the completed dissertations and thesis.The niche areas established in the previous years have not only been sustained but also shownGrowth. The MRC/MEDUNSA Diarrhoeal Pathogens Unit and Sexually Transmitted Disease thrust.Given the relative shortage of time, of personnel and of research funds the re- search output in theFaculty has continued to be impressive. A number of the faculty members are involved in various National and International organizations, editorial boards and have contributed chapters in several books. There has also been impressive research collaboration with national and international institutions. A total of 6 contract research protocols were approved by REPC 2001. this is also impressive for our young institution although more are still welcomed. ACADEMIC DAY 2001 The Faculty participated successfully in the annual Academic Day. The departments of Mcrobiology and MRC/MEDUNSA Diarrhoeal Pathogens Unit shared the MIAAVS 21
  22. 22. award for the most committedDepartments . The Academic Day prizewinners from the faculty were: B.E. de Villiers, N. Dabula, J. Molepo, Dr WM Politzer, Prof Summers, P Boss, PB Legoale, M. Esona, H Strauss and PT Madlala. Success is best evaluated not by where we are but by where we are going. With the appointment of Prof Mahlomaholo, in the Office of Research and Postgraduate Studies, we can only look forward to a continuation of increase in research output within the Faculty.
