Hundred million dollar gift for malaria institute

An anonymous donor has gifted 100 million dollars to Johns Hopkins University in the United States of America to set up a malaria institute. This would be the world’s foremost center for malaria research in the world.

Public health experts say the Johns Hopkins Malaria Institute will put the university at the forefront of efforts to find an effective vaccine and new treatments for the mosquito-borne disease, one of the leading killers in developing nations. Malaria kills atleast one million people and at least 500 million get infected every year. Apart from AIDS/HIV and Tuberculosis, malaria is the most deadly infectious disease in the world.

Some health facilities use bed nets, treated with insecticide, to curtail the disease but Johns Hopkins is among the few institutions trying to develop a successful vaccine or new drug treatments.

Dr. Diane Griffin, professor and chair of the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, will oversee the project. University officials ultimately expect the program to have 12 lead scientists and between 120 and 200 researchers and graduate scientists
