A plague vaccine was developed by Waldemar Haffkine
, a Jewish Ukrainian bacteriologist who was working in India when the plague entered Bombay.
The seeds of medical research, however, were sown with the opening of Indian Medical Services (IMS) in 1896 and the landmark discovery of Major General Sir Ronald Ross in elucidating the role of female anopheles mosquitoes in transmission of malaria, while working in Hyderabad in 1897, that followed with the commencement of systematic investigations of the problems of tropical and other diseases with the establishment of many research laboratories and institutions of excellence in different parts of the country such as Central Research Institute (CRI), Kasauli, the Bombay Bacteriological Laboratory (now Haffkine
Institute) at Parel, Mumbai, the king Institute at Guindy for Madras Presidency and the Pasteur Institutes at Kasauli, Coonoor, Shillong and Rangoon.
Working in India in 1897-98, he held a research appointment with the prestigious Haffkine
Laboratories in Bombay.
The product was a broth of heat-killed bacteria called the Haffkine
vaccine after its creator, Waldemar Haffkine
, a Russian scientist who fled his homeland for a post at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.
