MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas State University researcher is getting $113,000 over two years to help fight malaria.

Biology research associate Bart Bryant has been awarded the National Institutes of Health's National Research Service Award Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship includes research and mentoring and education components.

Bryant works in a laboratory that focuses on mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases, particularly malaria. He says the work is aimed at understanding how malaria interacts with mosquitoes and why mosquitoes are immune.

The hope is that by understanding how the immune system works, the researchers can eliminate parasites in mosquitoes and possibly find a cure for malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases.
