The American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) Research Fund is a vital initiative aimed at driving research in the field of mosquito control and related topics. As a nonprofit organization dedicated to public health enhancement through mosquito suppression, AMCA recognizes the critical role that research plays in developing innovative tools and strategies. With the ultimate goal of protecting the public from mosquito-borne diseases and discomfort, the AMCA Research Fund invites new pre-proposals each year.
The AMCA Research Fund is devoted to funding research that will lead to new tools and strategies for mosquito surveillance and control and ultimately protect the public from mosquito-borne disease and discomfort from mosquito bites.
