Prof Ernesta Meintjes election as a member of the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) is prestigious acknowledgement of her indisputable achievements in the pursuit and advancement of magnetic resonance imaging science.
While a feat of vision, engineering and innovation was putting men on the moon in 1969, at the tip of Africa, at the University of Cape Town (UCT), a nascent centre of engineering and innovation was being born.
The field of biomedical engineering is central to health technology innovation. In response to the need for biomedical engineering capacity in Africa, a free open-access e-book "Biomedical Engineering for Africa" edited by Prof Tania Douglas has recently be published.
Congratulations to Prof Tania Douglas for receiving the 2019 South African Women in Science Award as Distinguished Woman Scientist in Research and Innovation!
