- Tropical Medicine Causey, Calista E.
- This program, produced in collaboration with the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, presents an interview with Calista E. Causey, Sc.D., by Robert E. Shope, M.D. Dr. Causey recalls her years on a wife-husband team with the field team of the Rockefeller Foundation. Their work, carried out in conjunction with the Instituto Evandro Chagas in Brazil, and later in Ibaden, Nigeria, led to the discovery of significant virus/vector/host relationships. The team worked to eradicate Anopheles gambiense from Brazil, and later studied various arthropod diseases. Numerous viruses were discovered, particularly Group C arboviruses. Dr. Causey praises the Rockefeller Foundation, which allowed its field teams to work under optimal conditions for finding causes and solutions to epidemiologic problems.
