The University of Glasgow — Malaria Resistance Research

University of Glasgow
Award Date:
To support research on microsporidian MB.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $2,307,510 to the University of Glasgow to support Professor Steven Sinkins‘ research on microsporidian MB, a fungus that inhibits malaria transmission from Anopheles mosquitoes to humans. The project aims to develop detection methods for MB in mosquitoes, scale spore production, and evaluate interaction effects that may be useful for spreading MB throughout mosquito populations.

This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of scientific research.
