Research activities

We fund research designed to find innovative ways to develop new drugs, barriers to the insects and worms that carry the parasites, diagnostics and other tools against infectious diseases in developing countries. We also look for new ways to distribute and increase access to these tools. Work led by researchers from disease endemic countries is always one of our top considerations.
