Caption: Konstantin Ivanovich Skryabin (1878-1972), Russian-Soviet biologist. Skryabin pioneered studies of parasitic worms (helminthology). In the 1920s, he founded and organised three helminthology research institutes in Moscow. This culminated in the establishment of the Laboratory of Helminthology of the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1942, which he would lead until his death. He published landmark books on the subject (especially trematode worms), founded an international journal (Helminthologia), and helped identify pathogenic helminths and ways to prevent infections. His awards include the Lenin Prize (left) and Hero of Socialist Labour (right).
