The Project funds research that primarily focuses on disease and disease control; agricultural systems, livelihoods and economics; and health in a changing world. To achieve this, we fund Sandpit Fellows who were successfully awarded funding through one of our Sandpit events; through our own Postdoctoral Research Associates; and in response to the global pandemic, we have solicited our partner institutes to undertake Covid-19 research in their respective countries.
