Sir Ronald Ross, 1857-1932, began his career in 1881, in the Indian Medical Service. In 1888, after studying public health and bacteriology, he concentrated on determining the cause of malaria in India. From 1895 to 1898 Ross studied mosquitoes and the malarial parasite plasmodium. He succeeded in demonstrating the parasite's life cycle as identical in man to that in mosquito vectors. For this work he received the Nobel Prize in 1902. After 1899, Ross traveled and advocated anti- malaria public health programs in many countries. He was lecturer at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and first director of London's Ross Institute of Tropical Hygiene.
