OUR DIRECTOR PROF STEVE TOLLMAN WINS A ‘SCIENCE OSCAR’

Steve Tollman won the Science and Research Management Award at the 20th annual National Science and Technology Forum – South23 award ceremony in Johannesburg on the 28th June 2018.   We all agree that this is very well-deserved, given for establishing a high functioning research and data infrastructure to bridge the gaps in evidence on the health and wellbeing of rural populations in South Africa.  That’s exactly what the MRC/Wits-Agincourt Unit is.  Prof Tollman was on his way to scientific meetings in the UK/USA on the day of the ceremony so the award was received by Martin Veller, Dean of Health Sciences, who emphasised to the audience that Steve would have accepted the award on behalf of all in the Agincourt Unit.
