Professor Samantha Sampson is a TB researcher and heads the Host-Pathogen Mycobactomics Research Group at Stellenbosch University. The group aims to gain a better understanding of how the pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis interacts with its host to cause disease.
Dr Jomien Mouton is a post-doc in Prof Sampson's Host-Pathogen Mycobactomics Research Group at Stellenbosch University and is a VALIDATE Fellow. Dr Mouton's work focuses on establishing and validating a new dual-reporter system that can be utilised to identify and isolate “persister” populations of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
