If the recent postings and events concerning World Mosquito Day have left you wanting to know more about Sir Ronald Ross, who discovered the mosquito transmission of malaria in man, why not view our latest exhibition which covers his life and work.

The exhibition contains material from the Ross and Ross Institute and Hospital for Tropical Diseases archive collections, including: the page from Ross’ notebook where he made his discovery of the transmission of malaria in man by mosquitoes; photographs of Ross and the Ross Institute; documents relating to Ross' mosquito research across the world, including during the First World war and examples of Ross' artistic and literary work.

The exhibition will be on display in the Library exhibition area for the next three weeks. More information about the Ross and Ross Institute archive collections is available on the Archive Services website here.
