French military doctor, parasitologist and tropical medicine pioneer Alphonse Laveran is buried with his mother Louise Laveran, in a very simple tomb of the Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris. The tomb's location inside the cemetery is: 17th Division, Line 10 East, 2nd Tomb South. Laveran's studies and the discovery of the malaria-causing protozoa parasite, led him to win the first French Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1907.
