“Good science takes time, effort and dedication, and it does not come cheap…sometimes we have to hang on for dear life…”

For scientists who are passionate about understanding how things work, the challenge is always to find funding to support their research. By donating to our cause, you are investing in future discoveries that will benefit both man and animal – whether they be athletes or medical patients. Your support is greatly appreciated.


If you would like to make a contribution towards our research and you are located within South Africa, please contact our finance administration at: +27 (0)21 650 4561 (Mrs. Lesa Sivewright) or email and we will gladly provide you with the University details.
Alternatively, we are also running a crowd funding project via GoGetFunding, specifically to fund research for insulin resistance in carnivores. Here you may use your Credit Card or PayPal to make a donation.

All donations are audited by the University’s finance department.


We would like to acknowledge our current sponsors and thank them for their ongoing support. Without you there will just not be these discoveries!
