Stanislas Josef Mathias von Prowazek, a zoologist and microbiologist of Czech origin, worked with some of the greatest German researchers at the time, such as Fritz Schaudinn and Paul Erlich. He has carried out research on various infectious and parasitic diseases, such as trachoma, syphilis, protozoa, Newcastle disease, among others.
He was in Java, Japan, Sumatra and Western Samoa, always researching infectious and parasitic diseases. In 1908, he worked at the Instituto de Manguinhos, in studies on smallpox and vaccinia and in training young Brazilian researchers. With Rocha Lima, he developed research on exanthematic typhus. This illness was the reason for the two researchers' trip to a prison camp in Cotbus, in 1915. Both contracted typhus, but Prowazek did not survive.
