Prepare a prototype, which mimics a human being, with synthetic products that mimic the smell of dirty socks to attract mosquitoes and kill them. Grand Challenges and the Bill Gates Foundation have awarded $800,000. Among so much high technology aimed at combating diseases, surprises that sometimes the simplest, almost grotesque, can serve to put an end to a disease like malaria, which kills nearly 800,000 people a year.
