Teun Bousema – Laureate Ammodo Science Award 2019
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award 2019

Teun Bousema unravels the life cycle of Plasmodium falciparum, a parasite carried by mosquitoes that causes malaria. He is particularly interested in how a parasite from an infected human is then reintroduced to a new mosquito, and it was Bousema who discovered, among other things, that some people have an immune reaction that prevents this step from happening.

Ewout Frankema – Laureate Ammodo Science Award 2019
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award 2019

Ewout Frankema studies the historical roots of global inequality between the poor and the rich. This inequality grew dramatically between 1750 and 1990, and since then it has hardly reduced at all. In his integrated historical approach, he combines research into the ecological and geographical conditions in which rural societies develop with the economic, political and social relations which are shaped by mankind.
