Abstract

: Robert Leiper is best known for his discoveries in the fields of Guinea worm and schistosomiasis, but he also made major contributions to parasitology during his career as helminthologist and later Professor of Helminthology at the London School of (Hygiene and) Tropical Medicine. He was particularly involved in establishing the London School's Winches Farm Field Station and stimulating the research carried out there, work that has made a number of important contributions to our understanding of parasites. Leiper founded the Commonwealth Bureau of Agricultural Parasitology and was also instrumental in initiating, and editing, the Journal of Helminthology, Helminthological Abstracts and establishing, indirectly, Protozoological Abstracts.<br/>
