Pilot Grants

The JHMRI Pilot Grant Program was established to allow investigators from a variety of disciplines to initiate new projects relevant to malaria. 

Successful applications will focus on the development of new ideas which are likely to lead to future external funding. Pilot Grant preliminary and final results are presented at Malaria Friday Seminars and in poster sessions at the annual JHMRI symposium. Click to see all past and current pilot grants.
