March 19, 2009

In wealthy countries, the war against malaria was won nearly half a century ago, but the disease continues to afflict communities in the developing world. Now the University of Florida (UF) is doing what it can to help fight malaria. UF announced today that it has received a $1.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop modeling tools for malaria elimination. This is the first time a UF researcher has been awarded a direct grant from the foundation.
