Sinead Cameron-Mackintosh

I did my undergraduate degree in human genetics and physiology as well as my honours degree in genetics at the University of Pretoria. I have been passionate about human genetics from undergrad and am so thankful to be studying my dream degree in genetic counselling. My master’s research is titled: “Parents’ Perceptions Of The Educational Needs Of Their Children Attending Special Needs Schools In Cape Town”.


Outside of my academics, I run a science blog called Simply Genetics and have recently taken over the UCT Genetic Counselling social media pages. I believe that everyone should have access to science and that we need to create awareness about genetics and genetic conditions.
