    Tania supervised me during my degree at UCT in 2007. She was a huge influence in developing my interest in the biomedical field which ultimately led to the direction I took over the last 10 years. Tania had a huge impact on her students.

    The two traits about Tania that I most admired were her engaging smile and her ability to make everything she did seem effortless:

    We met in the fall of 1997 and we (Tania, Anu and I) became like sisters. Despite Tania returning to Cape Town and I settling in Scotland we managed to see each other at least once a year nearly every year and it always impressed and touched me that...  more
