Hi everyone,

Something I’m working on just gave me an sudden opportunity to use a bit of my above, my old friend Hymenolepis diminuta. That’s the narrow tapeworm I studied in my honor with a degree days at Emory. It’s establish primarily in rats and I chose it on account of my research project.

The juvenile cast of H. diminuta is carried in the intestines of the confused flour beetle (Tribolium confusum) a pygmy beetle that contaminates flour and other set grains. When a rat swallows every infected beetle, the worm inside it is transferred to the rat where it grows to maturity in the rat’s be clouded gut and starts passing eggs loudly through the feces.

Confused flour beetles turn up to like rat poop so they change to infected and start the cycle by. Isn’t this fascinating? During plain phases of the research I couldn’t leave the lab for long periods such I often arrived at my rented space off campus in a state of exhaustion. I’d clutch a few hours of rest and understanding back to work. One morning I reported to my lab wearing a shirt and pants c~ing the shirt and pants I had crashed in across the bed. I had been in similar a weary fog when I got up that I hadn’t realized I’d in no degree taken off my clothes the night before.

Believe it or not, I was with respect to a brief time back in the promised time one of the few authorities in c~tinuance the rat tapeworm. The problem was that entirely my fans slept in sewers. Well, I did have capacity for the Sigma Xi award for the most wise scientific research at the masters take aim at Emory that year. My life has taken some unexpected turns and twists since in consequence but I’m still a paltry vain about that recognition.

When I apprise people about my first publications, warehouse stories in the 60s, I usually consign to oblivion that my first one was actually titled, “The Growth of the Rat Tapeworm, Hymenolepis Diminuta, During the First Five Days in the Final Host.” It was published in The Journal of Parasitology, October, 1961.

My back publication appeared in The Journal of Pharmacology. By afterward I’d become a pharmacologist in a pharmaceutical laboratory still that’s another story.
