This annual award is named in honor of William Trager, PhD, who through basic parasitology research established in vitro culture conditions for Plasmodium parasites and thereby directly enables almost all of the current fields of basic and applied malaria research. His prolific contributions to the field include many awards and professional milestones and achievements including serving as President of ASTMH in 1979 and receiving the Society's Joseph Augustin LePrince medal in 1991 in recognition of outstanding work in the field of malarilogy.
