LSHTM Archives have joined with School scientists to discover more about our collection of Sir Ronald Ross’s malarial slides, dating from the 1890s. We have put Ross’s original slides under the microscope, with extraordinary results. Ross was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1902 for his momentous discovery in 1897 which proved the mosquito transmission of malaria. Drop by to see images of our unique investigations, talk to experts, meet the archivists and see other gems from the Ross Archive.
