Donate to the Ian Bathurst Sponsorship Programme

This donation programme is now closed. 

Meet the Ian Bathurst Global Health Travel award recipients.

Donations made to the Ian Bathurst Sponsorship Programme will be used to support scientists from malaria-endemic countries to attend international scientific meetings focusing on antimalarial drug discovery.

Ian Bathurst dedicated his career to drug discovery, particularly in the field of malaria. He had a passion for investigating natural products for their antimalarial potential and dreamt of spending his retirement in Africa helping to train scientists in malaria-endemic countries. In memory of Ian and his work, his family has kindly asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the newly instituted Sponsorship Programme.

Adding to Ian’s legacy, MMV will match the amount received and use the funds to assist scientists involved in antimalarial drug discovery from endemic countries to attend relevant international meetings. The programme will thus help strengthen scientific capability in these countries and spur the discovery of new antimalarials.

As a donor to the Sponsorship Programme you will be informed when it begins and receive information about its progress.
