Robert Desowitz, PhD was a scientist, researcher and you may know him best as the author of several very informative and entertaining books like New Guinea Tape Worms and Jewish Grandmothers and Who Gave Pinta to the Santa Maria?

Dr. Desowitz left us on Mar 24, 2008.

Being such a fan of his books made me decide to learn more about his life and work.

Joining me today to talk about Bob Desowitz is Louis Miller, MD. Dr Miller is  Chief, Malaria Cell Biology Section at the NIAID, NIH and according to Dr Desowitz’s daughter, Duba, “one of her dad’s best friends”.
