Jacques Achille Marie Euzéby is a French parasitologist born on August 11, 1920 in Bagnols-sur-Cèze, and deceased in Lyons on April 16, 2010.[1]

He studied in particular with emblematic figures of parasitology: Gabriel Marotel (Professor at the Lyons School of Veterinary Medicine), André Brizard (Professor at the Toulouse School of Veterinary Medicine), Jean Guilhon (Professor at the Paris-Alfort School of Veterinary Medicine), but also with Emile Brumpt (Professor at the University of Paris School of Medicine) and Robert-Philippe Dollfus (Researcher at the Natural History Museum of Paris).

Jacques Euzéby graduated from the Lyons School of Veterinary Medicine in 1943 (thanks to his thesis, dedicated to milk hygiene), ang got his MSc (biological chemistry, general biology, general zoology) and his so-called agrégation of veterinary schools (parasitology and parasitic diseases. He was then appointed as a professor at the Lyons School of Veterinary Medicine.

Doctor honoris causa from the Universities of Turin (Italy) and Timisoara (Romania), Jacques Euzéby was elected member of the French Académie Nationale de Médecine and of the French Veterinary Academy. He also belongs to the Spanish Royal Academy of Veterinary Sciences.

Jacques Euzéby’s international career is based on his studies on parasites (including fungi) and parasitic diseases, on compared parasitology and on parasitic zoonoses. This prestige was made true through his honor membership of the French Society of Exotic Pathology, of the French Society for Parasitology, of the European College of Veterinary Parasitology and of the'World Association for The Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP)- an organization he was elected president of. Although he refused all medals and distinctions, Jacques Euzéby was granted the Emile Brumpt Award and the WAAVP Award.

Jacques Euzéby wrote 25 scientific books and hundreds of scientific papers, dedicated to the epidemiology and general parasitology of parasitic diseases, to helmintoses (helminthiasis), nematodoses, cestodoses, trematodoses, protozooses, acariases (acariasis) and entomoses, to mycoses to parasitic zoonoses. His research were dedicated to experimental study of gastrointestinal anthelminthic drugs in sheep, to the epidemiology of alveolar echinococcosis (Euzéby was the first finder of this parasit in France), to the immunology of coccidiosis and to anthropozoonoses of parasitic origin.

From 1955, he participated in numerous teaching or research missions for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Epizzotic Office Office international des épizooties (OIE, that became World Animal Health Organization), the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He taught in several universities or veterinary schools in Mexico City, in Paraguay, in Saigon, in Nairobi, in Asuncion, in Curitiba or in Mosul (Iraq).

Jacques Euzéby has 6 children, among whom:

  • Alain Euzéby, Professor of Economics at the Grenoble Institute of Political Studies, a specialist in social-insurance economics, who wrote several books and articles dedicated to the impact of globalization on European social protection systems;
  • Jean Euzéby, Professor of Microbiology at the Toulouse School of Veterinary Medicine, a world-known specialist of bacterial taxonomy.
