EXPERTS celebrated World Mosquito Day – 115 years after Sir Ronald Ross discovered malaria was transmitted by the insects. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM ) hosted a “human library” – with academics “loaning” their knowledge to the public.
There was a 1930s band, cocktails and canapés, and Dr James Logan talked about bite prevention and how to treat itchy mosquito bites.
Dr Ross’s 1902 Nobel Prize for Physiology of Medicine is on display in the reception of the building in Keppel Street, Bloomsbury.
The Ross Institute was incorporated into LSHTM in 1934.
