About

Vernon Coyne obtained a BSc degree in Microbiology and Zoology from Rhodes University in 1978, a BSc (Hons) degree and a PhD degree in Microbiology from UCT in 1979 and 1985, respectively. In 1986, he left for Washington, D.C. where he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Microbiology Dept. at Georgetown University. From 1987 until 1990, he was a member of the Centre of Marine Biotechnology at Maryland University where he was a Research Assistant and later a Research Assistant Professor. He returned to the New South Africa in 1991 to take up a position as a Lecturer in the Microbiology Dept. at UCT. He was promoted ad hominem to Senior Lecturer in 1998, Assoc. Prof. in 2006 and became Head of Department in 2007.
