Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,175,000 over three years to the University of Glasgow to support research led by Professor Steven Sinkins on the potential effectiveness of a naturally occurring microsporidian species in preventing the transmission of malaria from mosquitoes to humans. This funding is intended to support research on the relevant biological properties of the microsporidian species and its potential effects on mosquito populations.

This falls within our work on scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
