Oxford Professor of Tropical Medicine Kevin Marsh is a principal investigator at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Kilifi, Kenya, as well as senior adviser to the African Academy of Sciences. His award recognises his sustained efforts to control and eradicate malaria, which impacts the health of tens of millions of African children.
Professor Marsh said: 'I am honoured to have been awarded the Al-Sumait prize in recognition of work carried out with many colleagues in Africa and in Oxford. The prize will be used to support the work of the African Academy of Sciences and the Africa Oxford Initiative, a new platform which brings together academics from across the University and from many African institutions to build equitable collaborations in all academic disciplines.'
