The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,044,501 to the CDC Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to support research on malaria control. This funding will be used to support work on the cryopreservation of mosquito larvae and embryos (which, if successful, would make it easier for researchers to maintain different strains of mosquitoes) and on RNA interference (which could lead to important improvements in efforts to control mosquitoes that spread malaria). Conceptually, we consider this part of our previous grant to Target Malaria.
