Charles-Louis-Alphonse Laveran was a French physician, medical researcher and pathologist who made path-breaking discovery of the protozoan parasite responsible for causing the endemic tropical disease, malaria. The protozoan was named by him as ‘Oscillaria malariae’, which was later renamed as ‘Plasmodium’. He also correctly presumed that the infection was transmitted by small midge-like flies called mosquitoes. This revolutionary discovery along with his other future works that include his findings that Trypanosoma, a genus of kinetoplastids was the cause of African sleeping sickness, also called trypanosomiasis, won him the ‘Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine’ in 1907. He remained an army surgeon during the Franco-German War (1870–71) and later served ‘École de Val-de-Grâce’ as the ‘Chair of Military Diseases and Epidemics’. His major discoveries and findings were attained in Algeria where he moved in late 1870s to serve as military surgeon. He became ‘Chief of the Honorary Service’ of the French non-profit private foundation ‘Pasteur Institute’. In 1893, he was elected to ‘French Academy of Sciences’. He co-founded the ‘Société de Pathologie Exotique’ (meaning: Society of Exotic Pathology) in 1907. The title of Commander of the ‘National Order of the Legion of Honour’ was bestowed upon him in 1912.
