The Program for Resistance, Immunology, Surveillance and Modeling of Malaria in Uganda (PRISM) has received a 7-year grant (up to 2024) at around $1 million annually. PRISM is one of seven ICEMR programs selected worldwide in malaria-endemic settings. The first seven-year ICEMR award/PRISM project 2010-2017 was also funded by NIAID and we are pleased to receive another grant award from NIAID.
