Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University (SMU)
School of Oral Health Sciences (SOHS)
I am following up with this email after discussing with you last week our research day at SMU and other research-related matters.
I am very enthusiastic about our upcoming SMU/School of Oral Health Sciences Research Day on the 18th of August, 2023, at SMU’s postgraduate venue, the Pharmacy Building. This event is titled “Roots in Research. Building fertile ground for research collaboration in Oral Health”.
It will provide a platform for undergraduate and postgraduate students and academic and private staff to showcase their research work, engage in meaningful discussions with peers, and discover new and exciting research opportunities.
We anticipate that more than 100 delegates will attend the event. With industry support, this event has the potential to become one of the important events in the University’s Oral Health Science calendar.
I am attaching details of my request to you for a much-needed and anticipated sponsorship.
It goes without saying that your company, Southern Implants, with wholly South African roots, is a leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing medical devices, including Dental Implants and Biomaterials, in SA and Worldwide. It is through your benevolence and interest in uplifting deserving communities and educational enterprises that I make an appeal to you for a favourable response.
I am happy to answer any questions regarding sponsorship, do not hesitate to contact me, our Dean, Prof Dini Mawela or the Research Chair, Dr Hilde Miniggio.
