Parceria de sucesso: Wellcome Trust e Instituto Evandro Chagas e além
This paper is dedicated to my dear friend the late Professor Ralph Lainson FRS (Figure 1)1, without him there would be nothing to write about. His drive and enthusiasm for finding and understanding parasitic protozoa were an inspiration to those who worked with him. Summaries of research in the Instituto Evandro Chagas related the presence of Wellcome Trust funding between 1965 and 1985 are available in the two volumes published in 1986 to celebrate the Institute's 50th Anniversary entitled "Instituto Evandro Chagas; 50 anos de contribução às ciências biológicas e à medicina tropical"2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. They contain a great deal of detailed information and it is not my intention to repeat this.
