Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran
Birth: Jun. 18, 1845
City of Paris
Île-de-France, France
Death: May 18, 1922
City of Paris
Île-de-France, France

Medical Pioneer, Nobel Prize Laureate Scientist. He received the first French Nobel Prize for Physiology (in the category of Medicine) in 1907 for his work on protozoa in causing diseases. He used half of the Prize money to found the Laboratory of Tropical Medicine at the Pasteur Institute. While visiting the malarial areas of France, he became the first scientist to express the view that the malarial parasite must be found outside the human body. This idea would later aid other scientists in discovering the source of malaria. In 1893, Laveran was elected a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. In 1912, he was made a Commander of the French Legion Of Honour. He also became an honorary member of a number of learned societies in France, Great Britain, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Russia, the United States, the Netherlands Indies, Mexico, Cuba and Brazil. His work on the treatment of trypanosomiases and especially on infections with Tr. gambiense protozoa led to new scientific discoveries regarding the diseases these protozoa caused, as well as to new studies regarding similar protozoa and bacteria. He died after an illness lasting several months. (bio by: Justiciero)
