Gates Foundation Explores On
4 May 2009 1:37 pm
Researchers in 17 countries have won $100,000 each from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop their unconventional ideas for improving health in the developing world.

Three thousand applied for what was the second round of grants in the foundation's Grand Challenges Exploration initiative; the deadline for round three applications is 28 May.
