MalariaWorld Journal publishes Grand Challenges Exploration special

May 27, 2013 - 21:03 -- Bart G.J. Knols

This week we are publishing seven research articles that were all funded by the Gates Foundation's Grand Challenges Explorations programme. This special series within the MalariaWorld Journal highlights the findings of seven GCE projects and is accompanied by an Editorial from the Gates Foundation. 

At MalariaWorld we were keen to hear more about the fate of these generally high-risk projects. What was the grand idea that researchers had in mind? And what was the outcome of the $100.000 grant that they undertook in 12-18 months?

Read for yourself how these GCE projects all showed very interesting results and thus underpin the value of the GCE programme of the Gates Foundation.

MalariaWorld Journal is proud to publish these articles and any recipient of a GCE grant is encouraged to also send us a manuscript upon completion of the project. We feel that it is important that these results are shared in the broader scientific community.

MalariaWorld Journal continues to be Open Access 2.0: where you don't pay to read and you don't pay to publish. We look forward to receiving your manuscript in due course.

On 21 April 2011 we celebrated the official launch of the Dutch Malaria Foundation at the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. During this event we presented with pride the members of our Committee of Recommendation Prof. Femke Halsema, former Member of Parliament, and Prof. Dr. Robbert Dijkgraaf, President of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences.

The Dutch Malaria Foundation strives for a world without malaria, through an integrated approach that focuses on prevention and the protection of people, as well as on the elimination of the parasite and the malaria mosquito. Our activities are a blend of high- and low risk, short- and long term projects. There is a focus on implementation of control- and elimination projects in malaria-endemic countries, applied research, information, education, and local entrepreneurship. We do not intend to do what other organisations do well; we rather collaborate with national and international partners to jointly increase our impact in the field.

The Dutch malaria Foundation has officially been declared a charitable organisation. MalariaWorld has become an official project of the Dutch Malaria Foundation.

MalariaWorld is a large international network of 6400 malaria professionals in more than 110 countries. In due course we will invite members of MalariaWorld to become engaged in the planning and implementation of the activities of our foundation.
