Between 1884 and 1894 Laveran returned to the Val-de-Grâce as professor of military hygiene but, when that appointment ended, the military authorities, with a total lack of imagination, could devise nothing better for him than routine posts as director of military hospitals at Lille and Nantes.
Laveran resigned from the army in disgust and went to the Institut Pasteur where he was welcomed with open arms.
As well as being a fellow of the Academie des Sciences and being awarded the Légion d'Honneur, Laveran was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and in 1907 won the Nobel Prize for Medicine.

Laveran's keen observations, and later travels and researches, not only made him an expert in tropical diseases, but won him the 1907 Nobel Prize in Medicine for tracing the propagation of malaria from a blood-borne protozoan parasite inserted from the bite of a mosquito.
Laveran worked from 1896 until his death in 1922 at the Pasteur Institute, named for Louis Pasteur, the discoverer of the germ theory of disease that shattered the medieval conception that disease signified divine disfavor and that faith and fetishes could cure it.

 Malaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Malaria (Italian bad air; formerly called ague in English) is an infectious disease which causes about half a billion infections and two million deaths annually, mainly in tropical countries and especially in sub-Saharan Africa.
The protozoan cause of malaria was discovered by a French army doctor, Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1907.
Malaria is caused by the protozoan parasite Plasmodium (one of the Apicomplexa).

While serving as a military surgeon in Algeria in 1880, Laveran discovered the cause of malaria in the course of the autopsies he conducted on malaria victims.
Laveran was a powerful influence in developing research in tropical medicine, carrying on fruitful work in trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, and other protozoal diseases, as well as his epochal work in malaria.
Laveran's extensive writings include Trypanosomes et trypanosomiasis (with Felix Masnil; 1904); Traite des fievres palustres avec la description des microbes du paludisme (1884); and Traite des maladies et epidemies des armees (1875).

Laveran’s discovery was, however, rejected by the medical community and it was not until 1886 that his discovery was accepted by Italian scientists, who were the leaders in the field at the time.
This was due in large measure to the influence of Patrick Manson, for three reasons a key figure in Ross’s contribution to the unravelling of the life history of the malarial parasite.
First, Manson demonstrated convincingly to a skeptical Ross the correctness of Alphonse Laveran’s pioneering observations of 1880: that the blood of malarial patients contained pigmented bodies of parasites.
