French parasitologist credited for introducing a technique known as xenodiagnosis into parasitological research. In 1935 he described Plasmodium gallinaceum, an avian malarial parasite that infects chickens and other fowl. He also conducted important research involving the African tsetse fly (Glossina palpalis) as a biological vector for trypanosomiasis. In addition, he did extensive studies of the diseases schistosomiasis, Chagas disease, onchocerciasis and leishmaniasis.
Brumpt's best known written work is Précis de Parasitologie, which was published in six editions between 1910 and 1949. He was the author of many scientific papers, including several on the Anopheles mosquito and its relationship to malaria.
Much of his career was spent performing research in Africa and Latin America.
He died on 8 July 1951, aged 74, in Paris, France.
