Welcome to the PRF website

The PRF works to support research aimed at furthering the development of Medical Virology in South Africa.

The recipient of the 2017 James Gear Fellowship has already been identified and applications received for the James Gear Fellowship will be considered for the 2018 award.

At present and for the time being, due to the large funding requirements for Research Grants and Bursaries, no applications for Post-Doctoral Fellowships and Travel Grants will be considered and therefore should not be submitted for 2017.
