Ross, Ronald (1857–1932)
British physician awarded the 1902 Nobel Prize in Physiology
or Medicine for his investigation, prompted by Patrick Manson, of the Anopheles
mosquito in relation to the transmission
of malaria, in the course of which he isolated
malarial cysts in the mosquito's intestinal tract, later correctly identifying
these with cysts he found in the bloodstreams of diseased birds (1897–98).
