Ross, Ronald (1857–1932)




Ronald Ross
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).
