Congratulations to AREF beneficiary Muhammed Afolabi on the award of a hugely deserved UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship

September 2019

Many African children suffer from debilitating worm infections.  They are are also exposed every year to deadly malaria.  With his UKRI Future Leaders Award, Dr Afolabi will investigate how West African children can be protected from both worms and malaria.  He will study the integration of helminth worm control with seasonal malaria prevention with antimalarial medicines.

Dr Afolabi was a very active participant in AREF’s Essential Skills for Grant-Writing, in Dakar in 2016.  We congratulate Muhammed on winning this prestigious UK fellowship.
