Description:
From the Workers in Tropical Medicine series produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Dr. Lucy Taliaferro describes decades of collaboration with her husband, William Taliaferro, in the field of parasitology, specializing in trypanosomes. They met at Johns Hopkins University, where Lucy Taliaferro received her Doctor of Science degree, married in 1919, and moved to Chicago when William Taliaferro was offered a position with the University of Chicago. The two studied the reactions that occur between a parasite and its host, and the reasons why some hosts (mice, guinea pigs) perished and others (rats) seemed unaffected by the presence of trypanosomes. They also studied the malaria-causing plasmodium and the most common treatment for malaria, quinine.
